J.D. Drew was an outfielder from the small town of Hahira, Ga., near Valdosta. He wasn't a heralded player being recruited by colleges from all over, but it didn't take long for coach Martin to realize that this kid from Hahira was destined for greatness. Drew had picked up the game of baseball at age 13 playing with his brothers and neighbors in the cow pastures across from his family home. He joined the Boys Club team in Valdosta and from there baseball became his focus. Drew went on to be named the Vikings' best offensive player all four years, all-regional MVP and a member of the Team Georgia All-Star squad his senior year.

Drew's college career was impressive. He rewrote history as he established himself as one of the best hitters in college baseball. He was a consensus first-team All-American after becoming the only player in Division I baseball history to hit 30 home runs and steal 30 bases. He was named Player of the Year by Baseball America, Collegiate Baseball, The Sporting News and the ACC, and received the Dick Howser Award given by the American Baseball Coaches Association. Drew was also a member of Team USA and crowned the Golden Spikes Award winner, given by USA Baseball to the best amateur baseball player.

Drew batted an FSU-record .455 in 1997 while becoming one of just three players in Division I history to record a triple-triple - 100 hits, 100 runs, 100 RBI. He broke a total of 17 Florida State and ACC records, including the FSU season batting average, FSU and ACC career slugging percentage and ACC season and career home runs. Drew completed his third and final season being named to the College World Series All-Decade team and eighth in Baseball America's collegiate "Player of the Century" poll.

The left-handed outfielder was a first round draft pick by the St. Louis Cardinals and is currently in his tenth season in the pros.
