SUNY COBLESKILL’S DAVID FLORA NAMED 2023 NAC PLAYER-OF-THE-YEAR

Written By Editor on 5/15/23 | 5/15/23



Waterville, Maine: The North Atlantic Conference (NAC) announced today that SUNY Cobleskill junior shortstop David Flora, Windsor, N.Y., Windsor High School/Herkimer Community College, has been named the 2023 NAC Baseball Player-of-the-Year by the league’s coaches.


This season Flora helped lead the Fighting Tigers to their third consecutive NAC Western Division Championship and establish a new program record for most wins in a single season as Cobleskill went 22-15 overall on the year including a 13-2 record in conference action.


According to Fighting Tiger Head Coach Austin Straub, his junior shortstop is a hard-nosed competitor that plays to win every time he takes the field.


“David is a true grit type of player who never fails to give 110% effort whenever he takes the field. This year he was our tone setter and catalyst who led us to our continued offensive improvements throughout the season. He is an extremely passionate player who plays to win at all times.”


During the season Flora made the move from third base to shortstop with no effect on his offensive production as the Windsor, N.Y. native batted .403 going 48-for-119 at the plate with an on-base percentage of .503. During the campaign he racked up 12 doubles, a triple, six home runs, 10 stolen bases, 37 runs scored, and 40 runs batted in with a slugging percentage of .672.


The Fighting Tiger junior led the NAC in batting average, on-base percentage, slugging percentage, on-base plus slugging percentage, runs batted in and hit by pitches while finishing second overall in home runs to become the second player in program history to earn NAC Player-of-the-Year honors.
