“I try to play my own game and be my own player,” UT infielder Kody Clemens said.

That mentality has worked out well for him as he’s racked up a plethora of awards and honors during the 2018 season. Big 12 player of the year, a Golden Spikes award semifinalist and a Bobby Bragan collegiate slugger award finalist, which is given annually to a division 1 baseball player in the state of Texas who excels in academics, at the plate and in personal integrity. Many people think that they know Kody Clemens from watching his famous father, Roger, a Texas baseball great and MLB all-star. But Kody Clemens stands on his own.
