Singer said he draws inspiration from Jake Peavy and Max Scherzer for his intense mound presence, and that fiery persona motivates his teammates. "That's the kind of person you want taking the mound for you," Florida shortstop Dalton Guthrie said. "You want someone who wants the ball when the game is on the line."

The reality of being a national champion is still setting in for Brady Singer. A couple weeks after helping Florida beat Louisiana State in the College World Series finals to win its first national title, Singer said what the Gators accomplished will occasionally hit him.

When he does think about the national championship, he said it means the world to him.

"That's something I'm going to remember until the end of time, being a part of the first national championship," the rising junior righthander said. "It means so much to me and to the guys."

Singer played a critical role in the national championship run. Voted a Preseason All-American by major league scouting directors, he had a strong regular season as a part of Florida's dynamic rotation of junior righthander Alex Faedo and fellow sophomore righty Jackson Kowar. Singer found yet another level in super regionals and finished the season by going 2-0, 1.80 with 32 strikeouts in 20 innings in his final four appearances. He won both of his starts in Omaha, including the first game of the championship series, which pushed Florida to the precipice of the national title.
