Vinson garnered second-team honors after hitting .400 with nine doubles and 13 home runs while driving in 56 runs despite missing 14 starts due to injury
 
The sophomore from Southlake was tabbed Daktronics South Central Region Player of the Year last season after hitting .503 with 22 homers and 67 RBIs. She garnered NFCA first-team All-America status and garnered Daktronics third-team mention.
 
Vinson is a two-time All-LSC performer and was named to the league's all-academic squad this season.
 
As a first-teamer, Jerrick moves on to the Daktronics All-America ballot.
