Mattox earns first-team All-PBC

 FLORENCE – Francis Marion University senior third baseman Todd Mattox was recently named to the 17-member first-team Peach Belt Conference’s 2021 All-Conference Team. 

Mattox, a native of Winnsboro and graduate of Blythewood High School, batted .405 this past season to become only the 10th Patriot to reach the .400 mark.  He shared the team lead in runs scored with 36, while registering six doubles, four triples, five home runs, and a team-leading 41 runs batted in. In the PBC, he ranked second in hitting, fourth in hits (62), and tied for third in triples.  He reached base safely in all 35 games (and 43 straight dating back to 2020), and hit safely in 31 of 35 games with 19 multi-hit games.  He also posted 11 multi-RBI games, batted .429 with runners in scoring position, and recorded hitting streaks of 11 and 12 games.

Mattox, a business major who will return next season for his NCAA-granted additional year, was twice named the PBC Player of the Week in 2021 and was named the FMU Team MVP. 

Francis Marion completed its 2021 season with an 18-17 overall mark and tied for ninth in the Peach Belt Conference standings. The Patriots will move to Conference Carolinas in the fall.
