Jesse Rall Named CoSIDA Academic All-District

Updated:
JOPLIN, MISSOURI -

Missouri Southern senior Jesse Rall has been named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District team, the organization announced today. 

To be selected for the award, student-athletes must be at least a sophomore in academic standing, as well as not being a first-year transfer to the institution. Student-athletes must also maintain a minimum of a 3.30 GPA, as well as participate in at least 50 percent of their team's competitions. The award is voted on by sports information professionals throughout Division II. 

Missouri Southern is part of District 7, which puts the Lions up against student-athletes in the MIAA, the Great American Conference and the Northern Sun Intercollegiate Conference. Rall's name now goes on the national ballot for Academic All-American. 

Rall was one of four MIAA baseball players to earn the honor as Giles Fox of Fort Hays State, Christian Binger of Southwest Baptist and Connor Law of Lindenwood also picked up first-team honors. Rall currently carries a 3.45 GPA in Biology/Pre-Med and intends to attend medical school after graduation from Southern.

This season, Rall is one of the most feared hitters in all of Division II as he ranks sixth nationally in home runs, while also ranking 15th in slugging, 25th in total bases, 31st in runs and 40th in RBIs. He set the single-season MSSU record for home runs with 18 and counting and his 34 career home runs rank second all-time, just seven behind a four-year performer. 

Rall is also one of the hardest individuals to keep off the basepaths nationally. He has reached base safely (hit, walk or hit by pitch) in every game this season (47), while also achieving the same feat in the final 28 games of the 2015 season to run his streak to 75-straight games. The NCAA Division II record in that category is 88-straight games. 

Rall and the Lions will finish out the regular season this weekend as they head to Northeastern State for a three-game series starting tomorrow at 2 pm.
