BIRMINGHAM, Ala. – University of Alabama in Huntsville senior shortstop Grant DeBruin earned Gulf South Conference Baseball Player of the Week honors for the week ending March 25. The honor is the second this season for DeBruin, and also the second of his career, while marking the third overall honoree this year.

DeBruin batted 11-for-20 at the plate while pacing the Chargers to a 2-3 record on the week, lacing three doubles and one home run while plating nine RBI and scoring four runs. The senior recorded multi-hit games in all but one contest.

The Boaz, Ala., native closed Tuesday's doubleheader versus Lincoln Memorial with a 3-for-5 effort which included five RBI and his league-leading sixth home run. DeBruin added three more RBI in the series opener at West Alabama and finished the series with two doubles in the rubber game.
