Racers' Cozart named National Player of the Week



After a big week, Murray State baseball's Jordan Cozart has been named National Player of the Week by Collegiate Baseball and OVC Player of the Week.

In three games at Austin Peay, Cozart hit .600 (9-15) with four home runs, a double, 10 RBI and six runs scored. He had a slugging percentage of 1.467 and an OPS of 2.067.

Cozart's biggest game came on Sunday when he went 5-for-6 with three home runs and nine RBI. He is the first Racer to have five hits in a game since 2018 and the first player with three home runs since 2016. He had multiple hits in all three games over the weekend.

The senior becomes the second Racer in four weeks to win OVC Player of the Week after Ryan Perkins earned the honors for the week ending February 23.
