Tison named to First Team All-CAA
George Mason senior shortstop Brig Tison put the finishing touches on an outstanding collegiate career. His strong play netted him multiple honors including First Team All-CAA, ABCA/Rawlings All-East Region Second Team, as well as being named to the Eastern College Athletic Conference (ECAC) All Star Team.
Helgeson Slugs His Way Into Record Books
Helgeson joined Tison as the only two players to start all 57 games for the Patriots. He finished the season leading the team in slugging percentage (.605), on-base percentage (.438), RBI's (51), doubles (17), home runs (15), total bases (121) and walks (38), while standing second in runs scored (38) and third in hits (59).
Helgeson concluded his two-year career at Mason ranked 10th all-time with 30 home runs and 15th with a .572 slugging percentage.
Bill Brown is in his 33rd season as the head coach of George Mason baseball, and his 37th season involved with the Patriots.
After two seasons as a Patriots catcher and two years as an assistant coach, Brown has maintained the success he inherited with the program and lifted it to new heights. George Mason's all-time leader in coaching victories with a 32-year record of 895-801-6, Brown surpassed the program's founder, Raymond H. "Hap" Spuhler, in 1993. Spuhler was 318-169-3 in 12 seasons before George Mason entered the Division I ranks.
Brown guides the Patriots through their inaugural Atlantic 10 Conference season in 2014, and before that, left a mark as one of the most decorated coaches in Colonial Athletic Association history. Brown was honored as CAA Coach of the Year a record six times and has guided George Mason to some of its greatest accomplishments. Since 1985, the Patriots have won two CAA titles and finished second three other times, and they have made six appearances in the NCAA Tournament.
George Mason also has posted at least 30 victories in a season 14 times in the last 25 years, including a school-record 42 wins and an at-large berth in the NCAA Tournament in 2009. Mason was nationally-ranked for the first time in school history that year, rising into the top 30 in both the National College Baseball Writer's Association and Collegiate Baseball polls.
Steve Hay enters his seventh season as a member of the George Mason coaching staff and he is in his 12th season as a collegiate assistant coach. Hay came to Mason after five seasons at Webber International University where he was pitching coach and recruiting coordinator. In 2002 the NAIA school finished among the top five in the country in ERA and in 2003, WIU was among the top 15 in that category. The team also won the NAIA Baseball Scholar Team Award two years in a row.
In Hay's 12 seasons, 14 different pitchers he has coached have been selected in the Major League Baseball Draft and 25 players have moved on to professional careers. Most recently, pitchers Chris O'Grady and Brandon Kuter were selected in the 2012 MLB Amateur Draft.
With Mason, he is not just the team's pitching coach, but the recruiting coordinator as well. In his first season at Mason, Hay helped guide Jordan Flasher to the school record in single-season and career saves as he finished among the top five in the nation in that category. He also coached J.J. Pannell who was named second-team All-CAA and was selected in the Major League Baseball Amateur Draft.
Lewis "Tag" Montague is in his first season as assistant coach at George Mason.
Montague arrived in Fairfax following two seasons in the same role at the University of Richmond. While there, he worked with the hitters, infielders and baserunners, while also assisting in the Spiders' recruiting efforts.
Montague came to the Spiders after spending two years as an assistant at Old Dominion University. Prior to that, Montague was the head baseball coach at Douglas Freeman High in Richmond, where his team finished second in the district in 2008-09.
Montague's ties to the Spiders run deep, having previously served as an assistant, along with McQueen, on the staff in 1998-99 and having played high school baseball at Tucker in 1984 under former Spider Hall of Fame head coach Ron Atkins.
Volunteer Assistant Coach
Justin Walker is in his first season as volunteer assistant coach at George Mason.
Walker arrives in Fairfax after previous college coaching experience at Bowling Green State University in 2011, and a season working with John Carroll University.
A native of Marengo, Ohio, Walker is a graduate of Rio Grande University in Ohio, where he earned his degree in sports and exercise studies with a minor in coach leadership.
