Heston Kjerstad - Baseball

Why Honored: Kjerstad, who is currently in his second year with the University of Arkansas Razorbacks, hit 14 home runs, 58 RBI's, 65 runs, and batted a .332 during his debut season. Those impressive stats led to him being named to the 2018 D1 Baseball Freshman All-American 1st Team, the 2018 1st Team All Freshman All America by National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, and being honored as the SEC Freshman of the year.

Kjerstad played a key role in the Razorbacks run to the college world series. Once there, he helped lead his team to an appearance in the finals before falling just short of the title.
