Kade Scivicque is one of three finalists for the Johnny Bench Award, which goes to the nation's best catcher.
Garrett Stubbs (USC) and Matt Winn (VMI) are the two other finalists. The award will be handed out June 25.
Scivicque was the second LSU player to be named a finalist for a major national award on Monday. Alex Bregman is up for the Golden Spikes Award, which is awarded annually to the nation's best amateur baseball player.
Scivicque currently ranks fourth on LSU's team with a .347 batting average and his .509 slugging percentage is good for third. He drove in 44 runs, scored 29 and hit five homers. He had 27 multi-hit games this season and 12 in which he drove in multiple runs, including four games with three RBI.
Scivicque also had a 23-game hitting streak this year, the longest of anyone on the team.
Scivicque also served as a senior leader, and his impact was felt as a veteran influence on the Tigers' young pitching staff. He was successful on 220 of 232 block attempts and threw out 35 percent of the runners that attempted to steal on him (18-for-51).
Scivicque was one of five Tigers selected to the All-SEC First Team.
Brad Creese in 2000 is the only LSU catcher to win the Johnny Bench Award.
