Anthony  Quirion, Lamar University

Before the start of the 2020 season, Quebec player Anthony Quirion was selected Perfect Game to its Southland Conference preseason all-star team ... as a third baseman!

This year, 19 days before the start of the NCAA Division I season, Quirion is once again honored by Perfect Game on the Southland Conference preseason all-star team ... but this time as a catcher!

Wow! What phenomenal proof of versatility.

It must be said that Quirion had a whole 2020 season with his from Lamar University Cardinals in Texas, even if the campaign was cut short due to the COVID-19 pandemic.

Indeed, the athlete from Dixville, Que. took part in 17 games with his team posting a batting average of .324, with three doubles and three many home runs. The 6-foot-3 colossus weighing just over 200 pounds also knocked in 18 runs.

What’s more, as if that wasn’t enough, Quirion was perfect on defence, having been involved in 81 chances in those 17 games.

No wonder then that Perfect Game’s comment on his selection reads: “Versatile defender with consistent bat,” which can be translated to “Versatile defender with consistency at bat.”

Quirion and his teammates, including Quebecer Déric Lamontagne (Beloeil, Que.) start their 2021 season on Feb. 19 at University of Texas-Rio Grande Valley in Edinburg, Tex.
