Delta State’s Craig Newton, a senior catcher, and Brian Pettway, a slugger for Ole Miss, are finalists for the Boo Ferriss Award. Newton was a senior at Warren Central when Pettway was a sophomore. Ole Miss junior Stephen Head and Millsaps’ infielder Garner Wetzel are the other finalists. Head won the award last year.
