Sometimes, in this profession, it feels like a daunting task keeping up with former Crowder baseball players because they’re all over the place.
Troy Cahill played shortstop and third base on the 2015 and 2016 Crowder teams and he first headed to NCAA Division I Nicholls State (Louisiana) to continue his academic and athletic career after Crowder.
Cahill transferred to NCAA-II Arkansas-Fort Smith and he enjoyed an outstanding senior season for the Lions, one which earned him D2CCA All-South Central Region second team honors.
Cahill played and started in all 51 games for the 32-19 Lions and tallied a .288 batting average with 53 hits, 13 doubles, one triple, six home runs, and a team-high 48 RBI.
Cahill rightfully earned his all-region spot at utility player, rightfully considering all his versatility displayed in his senior campaign.
Yes, Cahill played mostly at second base for the Lions, but also showed up at third base, shortstop, first base, and right field.
Cahill was one of nine Heartland Conference players honored for all-region first or second team.
