These former Seahawks include pitchers Brandon Cook, Brandon Diaz, Danny Dopico, Jorge Marrero, Jaime Pozo, Alex Seibold and Chris Walkerow;  infielders Carlos Garmendia and Lorenzo Papa; outfielders Justin Cummings and Sly Edwards and catcher Chucky Vazquez.

   Diaz and Dopico remain teammates after each committed to Florida International University. Diaz started six of 10 games on the mound and struck out 45 batters in 33 innings.  Dopico made a team-high 19 appearances—all in relief. 
   Marrero, a second team all-Southern Conference selection after finishing second among Seahawks in innings pitched (52.2), throwing the only complete game of the season and tying Robert Cancio for most saves with two, has committed to Florida Atlantic University.

   Seibold, a second team all-conference selection after posting team-highs in starts (10), innings pitched (57.2) and tying Diaz for most strikeouts (45), has committed to Bethune Cookman University. 
   Walkerow, who started 20 of 23 games during his Seahawk career and this season tied Ryan Guerra for most victories with three, signed with Campbell (N.C.) University.  
   Garmendia, a second team all-conference selection after leading the Seahawks in runs batted in (29), doubles (16), home runs (six), total bases (81) and at bats (167), has committed to Rollins College.  
   Papa, who tied Garmendia for most starts (43) and topped all Seahawk fielders in defensive chances (276) and putouts (254), signed with Southern New Hampshire University.  
   Cummings, who tied Tyler Fichter for highest fielding percentage with a 1.000 mark, committed to University of Northeastern Ohio.  
   Edwards, a first team all-conference selection after topping the Seahawks in batting average (.327), runs (37) and tying Fichter in hits (49) and Alex Roberts in triples (four), signed with  Charleston Southern (S.C.) University. 
   Vazquez, a first team all-Southern Conference selection after leading the Seahawks with a .489 slugging percentage and throwing out a team-high 12 base stealers, committed to Lipscomb (Tenn.) University.

   Broward College utility player Robert Cancio was chosen by the Arizona Diamondbacks in the 31st round (930th selection overall) of the Major League Baseball Draft. Cancio pitched in 11 games with 10 appearances as a reliever and struck out 30 batters in 15 innings.  The freshman lefthander posted two saves to tie Jorge Marrero for most on the staff. Cancio also played 10 games either at first base or as a pinch hitter. 
   Broward College recruit Kevin Rivera was selected in the 14th round (418th overall) by the San Francisco Giants. Rivera, a second baseman, played in the Carlos Beltran Academy in Barceloneta, Puerto Rico.

   Broward had six players named all-Southern Conference with first team honors for outfielders Sly Edwards and Tyler Fichter along with catcher Chucky Vazquez. Second team selections included infielder Carlos Garmendia along with pitchers Jorge Marrero and Alex Seibold.
   Edwards topped the Seahawks in batting average (.327), runs (37) and tied Fichter in hits (49) and Alex Roberts in triples (four).  Fichter led in stolen bases (19), sacrifice flies (six), total plate appearances (198) and tied Justin Cummings for highest fielding percentage (1.000). Vazquez was first in slugging percentage (.489) and threw out a team-high 12 base stealers.
   Garmendia was first in runs batted in (29), doubles (16), home runs (six), total bases (81) and at bats (167).  Marrero pitched the only complete game and tied Robert Cancio in saves (two). Seibold led in starts (10), innings pitched (57.2) and tied Brandon Diaz in strikeouts (45).
   According to the latest NJCAA statistics (May 5), Ryan Guerra is 18th out of 50 pitchers in earned run average (1.55). Guerra topped the Seahawks in ERA and tied Chris Walkerow in wins (three). Danny Dopico had the most appearances with 19. Jordan Jackson led in on-base percentage (.424). Austin Langham was first in hit-by-pitches (six) and the freshman infielder had a team-high 93 assists.
