Purdue’s Plawecki named finalist for Dick Howser Award

The Purdue Boilermakers baseball team has enjoyed a great season, going 41-11 overall, 17-6 in the Big Ten.

The program has achieved a season-record for wins as well as their first regular-season title since 1909.

One of the reasons is junior catcher Kevin Plawecki.

Plawecki has been named as one of 35 finalists for the Dick Howser Trophy, which is given to the top player in college baseball.

Purdue is 13th-ranked in the country in baseball.

The Dick Howser Trophy, given in memory of the former Florida State University All-America shortstop and major league player and manager, who died of brain cancer in 1987, is regarded by many as college baseball’s most prestigious award. Criteria for consideration of the trophy include performance on the field, leadership, moral character and courage, qualities that were exemplified by Dick Howser’s life.

The Dick Howser Trophy winner is determined by two rounds of national voting by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association. The award will be presented on Friday, June 15, the opening day of the 2012 College World Series.

A Florida native, Howser was twice an All-America shortstop at Florida State (1957-58), then coached the Seminoles in 1979, after a career as a major league player and coach. After one year in the college ranks, Howser returned to the majors to manage the New York Yankees and Kansas City Royals and won the World Series with the Royals in 1985. The baseball stadium on the Florida State campus is named for Howser.

Plawecki has started all 52 games for the Boilermakers. The clean-up hitter leads the team in doubles with 19, extra-base hits with 26, a .455 on-base percentage,.562 slugging percentage. He is second in runs scored with 48, walks with 23, in batting average at .366 and is the most difficult hitter to strike out in the Big Ten with eight in 200 at bats.

PENN STATE AT OHIO STATE GAMEWEEK: Buckeyes try to rebound against Nittany Lions

The Ohio State Buckeyes are looking to rebound this afternoon at home against the Penn State Nittany Lions.

The Buckeyes lost last week in overtime against the Purdue Boilermakers in West Lafayette, 26-23.

The Bucks could’ve won the game in regulation, but the extra point was blocked.

With that loss, OSU is an unheard of 1-3 on the road this season. During Jim Tressel’s tenure as a coach, they lost only three road games.

Today at 3:30 p.m., the Buckeyes will be hosting Penn State who is 8-2, 5-1 and the #1 team in the Leaders Division. OSU leads the series 13-12 and won 38-14 last year in Columbus.

The Nittany Lions are trying rebound themselves from a loss to Nebraska, 17-14, and the loss of their long-time head coach Joe Paterno.

Penn State, before a couple of weeks ago, was one of the cleanest programs in college football. But then the Jerry Sandusky child sex-abuse accusations started, and the media-blitz of bad press has followed since. Those accusations on Sandusky have resulted in the president, Paterno, the athletic director and the Business manager who ran the campus police all being ousted.

Penn State has a storied program with 826 all-time wins (5th in nation), 43 Bowl Games (8th in nation), 27 Bowl Wins (3rd in nation), 95 1st Team All-America Selections.

The Nittany Lions are now coached by defensive coordinator Tom Bradley, who is in his 33rd season at his alma mater.

Special teams might play into this game.

Penn State on kickoff returns is led by Chaz Powell and has ran one back for a TD. Punt returner Justin Brown is steady and catches all balls.

The placekicking/punter duties belong to Anthony Fera who averages 42.1 yards a punt and is 12 of 15 on field goals. He is 1 for 4 from 40 yards or more.

Ohio State’s KOR and PR is led by the explosive Jordan Hall.

WEST LAFAYETTE, INDIANA– Ohio State’s three-game winning streak ended at the hands of a determined Purdue Boilermakers, who are 5-1 at home this season.

The Boilers won 26-23 in overtime.

The Buckeyes who seemed at times as if they would get blown out of the game, stayed close as freshman quarterback Braxton Miller weaved his magic feet to bring the team off the mat in regulation with a 4th-and-3 at the Purdue 13, he kept the play going by scrambling and heaved the ball to a jumping Jordan Hall for the game tying touchdown. The would-be game-winning extra point was blocked by Purdue and the game went into overtime after OSU DB Ohrian Johnson intercepted a Robert Marve pass down the field as the fourth quarter clock was winding down.

In overtime, Ohio State hit a 33-yard field goal to push the Buckeyes up 23-20.

But Purdue, led by fifth-year senior Marve, led his team into the end zone on a 1-yard TD dive for the game-winner.
