    With the 2018 season in the rearview mirror, coach Scott Berry and the Golden Eagles turn their attention to 2019. Six USM seniors graduated this year and two juniors – Nick Sandlin and Luke Reynolds – are headed to the MLB. Therefore, Berry looks for the next mand to lead Southern Miss. The nine-year head coach believes sophomore Matt Guidry could be a viable candidate. The Oak Grove grad boasted the third-best batting average on the team this year (.328).
