Anthony Maule (Senior; Vulcan, Michigan) and Sam De Nooy (Senior; Sully, Iowa) earned the honor for the second time in their careers.

Maule, an engineering major, played in 21 games this year for the Defenders and batted .314 with eight runs scored.  De Nooy claims the honor after studying biology and played in 20 games and scored nine runs while being used mostly as a pinch runner.  Both athletes claimed the honor in 2013 as well.
