Sept. 3, 2010
BLOOMINGTON, Ind. - For this week's Friday Update, junior All-American Alex Dickerson sat down with IUHoosiers.com in the team's locker room. He discussed his summer with Team USA, his teammates and the upcoming fall. Click here to watch the interview.
Dickerson, who earned All-America recognition from several publications, is the fourth All-American in the last three years for IU, which had just six All-Americans in school history prior to Tracy Smith's tenure. Dickerson is the fifth Hoosier to earn first team recognition, matching the selection of former teammate Eric Arnett, who was a first teamer in 2009. Josh Phegley garnered All-America laurels in both 2008 (second team) and 2009 (third) under Smith's watch.
The left fielder became the third Hoosier in school history to be named Big Ten Player of the Year, being so named in unanimous fashion by the conference coaches. He is the first player in Big Ten history to earn Big Ten Freshman of the Year and Player of the Year honors in consecutive seasons.
