After throwing the first individual no-hitter by an LSU pitcher since 1979, senior left-hander Jared Pocé earned some national recognition.

Poché was one of 10 players recognized by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper as National Players of the Week after he held Army hitless in a seven-inning contest Saturday. The only thing standing between Poché and a perfect game was an error by right-fielder Greg Deichmann.

It was the sixth individual no-hitter in LSU history — of which five were recorded in seven inning games. Poché needed 79 pitches to finish the game.

Poché was also named the Southeastern Conference Pitcher of the Week Monday.
