Crews hit .362 with 16 doubles, two triples, 18 home runs and 42 RBIs. The 18 home runs, affectionately referred to as Crews Missiles, set a new single season school record by a freshman.
In addition to his Freshman of the Year award, Crews was named a Second-Team All-American, Freshman All-American, Second-Team All-SEC and Freshman All-SEC. He is the seventh Tiger to be named Freshman of the Year, joining Todd Walker, Brett Laxton, Mike Fontenot, Lane Mestepey, Alex Bregman, and Alex Lange.
