Cal Conley wins Brooks Wallace Award

The Redshirt-Freshman takes home top shortstop honor in the country

Texas Tech Athletics

Cal Conley has won the 2021 Brooks Wallace Award, given to the top shortstop in the country each season.

Conley finished the season with a .329 batting average, 15 home runs, and 55 RBIs. He was also named to the second team All-America Squad. One of my top Tech sports plays this season belongs to Conley, as he swung Tech to victory by way of a walk-off home run against TCU.

After his freshman year was cut short due to COVID, Cal continued his excellent career for the Red Raiders. While Jace Jung justifiably draws a lot of attention, Cal was consistently making big plays both offensively and defensively. The youth movement in Lubbock was a big reason for the team able to make the run it did despite the numerous injuries the roster suffered.

Congratulations to Cal on his absolute gem of a season and we hope to see him back in Scarlet and Black.
