Three Dixie State Baseball Players Earn All Pac-West Honors

ST. GEORGE, Utah-Wednesday, three Dixie State baseball players were given all-conference honors for a job well done this season.

This voting was done by all Pac-West baseball coaches and the Trailblazers to be honored include senior catcher Jake Davison, senior infielder Kyle Hoffman and junior utility player Joe Raymond.

Davison, a Taylorsville, Utah product, was voted as the Pac-West’s defensive player of the year and named to the third team.

Davison posted a .987 fielding percentage, committing only one error in 309 chances with 45 total assists and threw out 19 of 45 possible base stealers.

Davison batted .259 on the season, netting nine extra-base hits and 30 RBI, while also scoring 20 times.

On March 26, he netted a career-high 6 RBI in the Trailblazers’ 17-4 win over Hawaii Pacific.

Hoffman, also a Taylorsville product, made the third team as well and batted .305 with two home runs, 24 RBI and 30 runs scored. Hoffman finished with 11 extra-base hits and five multi-RBI games.

Raymond, a native of Foresthill, Calif., also made the third team and batted .327 while netting 11 doubles, on home run, 23 RBI and 31 scored runs.

Raymond’s versatility allowed the Trailblazers to use him at six different positions. He started nine times apiece at third base and right field. Raymond posted six multi-hit games, finishing the season on an 8-game winning streak.

Dixie State ended the season at 25-25, including 21-19 in the Pac-West. This is their last season in the Pac-West as the entire Trailblazers’ athletic department will join the football team in the Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference in 2018-19.
