Duncan caps off college career with All-MAC second team honors

Norwalk graduate Clay Duncan was named to the All-Mid American Conference second team as a first baseman.

Duncan finished the season batting .301 overall with 10 extra-base hits and led the Falcons with 30 RBIs. Perhaps most impressive is that through 47 regular season games, Duncan was flawless in the field by not committing an error in 455 attempts. In conference play, the senior tri-captain batted .333, had a share for the team-lead in doubles (6), again led the team in RBI (20) and had slugging and on-base percentages above .400.

Last year, he played six different positions, playing in 43 games, including 33 starts. He went 6-for-12 with two doubles and two RBIs against Akron in a three-game series. Between Feb. 28 and March 27, he had hits in eight of 11 games played (10-for-31). He was given the Mr. Versatility Award and the Aaron Lawnizak Mr, Hustle Award by the team.

As a sophomore, he played in 24 games and started 10. He recorded his first career hit against Eastern Kentucky on March 8 on a two-out, two-RBI single. He also put together a four-game hitting streak between March 24 and April 4.

His freshman season, he played 21 games with 10 starts and had three multi-hit games after being a four-year letterwinner at Norwalk, where led the Truckers to the Northern Ohio League title his junior season. He was the team Most Valuable Player twice and was the Most Valuable Pitcher three times. He also lettered in football and basketball.
