Former Columbus High standout J.T. Phillips earned two major awards from the Georgia Collegiate Athletic Association.
Phillips, a sophomore shortstop and pitcher at Georgia Perimeter College, was named the GCAA Player of the Year and Defensive Player of the Year.
Phillips led the GCAA in batting average at .422 and was third in RBIs with 49. He also tied for league lead in saves with seven.
GCAA is a conference of 10 junior colleges in Georgia.
Never miss a local story.
Phillips began his college career at Georgia, but he was dismissed from the team last spring after being arrested for DUI.
Georgia Perimeter, which has already won the GCAA Region 17 title, begins play Friday in a four-team district tournament (two teams from Georgia and two from Tennessee) with the winner heading to the JUCO world series later this month.
