TEMPE, Ariz. -- Arizona State University catcher Casey Myers earned several awards during his record-breaking junior campaign in 2000, but his recent accolade of being named the top defensive player in the nation by Collegiate Baseball may be his finest.

Myers, who is a senior-to-be for the Sun Devils, had a career year in 2000 by hitting .412 with 18 home runs and 97 RBI and was named the Pac-10 Player of the Year. While his offensive statistics were impressive and earned him All-American honors by several publications, it was his .996 fielding percentage behind the plate that earned him the distinction of being named the top defensive player in collegiate baseball.

Myers, a native of Casa Grande, Ariz., made only one error in 516 total chances and threw out 16 of 43 baserunners behind the plate. In his career as a Sun Devil, Myers has a .995 fielding percentage.
