Luke Heyman and Liam Peterson Log Weekly SEC Honors

Florida catcher Luke Heyman has been named the SEC Co-Player of the Week while right-handed pitcher Liam Peterson is the SEC Freshman of the Week, as announced by the conference office on Monday.

For Heyman, Monday’s announcement marks his first-career weekly SEC honor. This is the second Freshman of the Week accolade for Peterson, who was previously tabbed the conference’s top rookie on Feb. 26.

Both players were instrumental in Florida’s series victory at No. 9 Georgia in the regular-season finale. Heyman did the heavy lifting for the UF offense, leading the SEC with 10 RBI and belting three home runs.
