His undergraduate alma mater, Vanderbilt University, won the 2019 College World Series (CWS).

The 2019 CWS took place in Omaha, Nebraska, and wrapped up on June 26 as the Vanderbilt Commodores registered an 8-2 victory over the University of Michigan Wolverines in the third and deciding game of the series. Pitcher Mason Hickman recorded 10 strikeouts through six innings in the win, while catcher Philip Clarke led the way offensively with three hits. Vanderbilt trailed 1-0 after the first inning, but scored runs in the each of the following three innings to take a 6-1 lead. Freshman Kumar Rocker, who pitched in Game 2, was named the CWS Most Outstanding Player.

While it was Vanderbilt’s second CWS victory in six years, this one was particularly special as Game 3 was attended by the parents of Donny Everett, a one-time star pitcher with Vanderbilt who tragically drowned just prior to the 2016 playoffs. Everett’s parents, Teddy and Susan, joined the players on stage for the trophy presentation.
