MACON, Ga. (MERCER ATHLETICS RELEASE) – Recent Mercer baseball graduate Derrick Workman furthered his remarkable career resume during his time as a Bear by being named the Atlantic Sun Conference Male Student-Athlete of the Year on Thursday afternoon.

Workman is the first Mercer male student-athlete to be honored as an A-Sun Male Student-Athlete of the Year since men’s basketball player Will Emerson accomplished the feat during the 2005-06 season.

Owner of a perfect 4.00 GPA as a communications major, Workman has had a noteworthy last three weeks that have been filled with several significant awards. Workman was voted the A-Sun Conference Baseball Scholar-Athlete of the Year on May 20 and followed that up with becoming just the third Mercer student-athlete in school history named a Capital One Academic All-America first team member on May 30.

On the field, Workman hit .287 with eight doubles, five home runs, 27 RBI and a .395 on-base percentage this season. The Acworth, Ga. native finished his career in Macon with a program record 272 hits and ranks 22nd in A-Sun Conference history with 839 career at-bats and tied for 26th all-time with his 272 hits.

Workman can also be identified by his involvement in activities that make a difference off the field. Along with participation in the Mercer’s Student Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC), Workman helped build houses with Habitat for Humanity with his Mercer baseball teammates. Workman also impacted the lives of countless children throughout Central Georgia as a volunteer with several organizations including the Macon Miracle League, Boys and Girls Club of Middle Georgia, Must Ministries of Atlanta, Miller Middle School and serving as an assistant youth and children’s minister with his local church.
