    Brian Wolfe is the leading hitter for the nationally ranked University of Washington baseball team.

OMAHA, Neb. — University of Washington senior outfielder Brian Wolfe has been named to the watch list for the 2014 Gregg Olson Award. The award is presented annually to college baseball's “Breakout Player of the Year.”
Wolfe, a graduate of Snohomish High School, was joined on the list by 79 other players from around the country, including UW pitcher Tyler Davis.
Wolfe ranks second in the Pac-12 with a .382 batting average and .535 slugging percentage. He also ranks fourth with a .445 on-base percentage and is tied for eighth with 32 RBI. He entered the season with a .215 career average in 200 at-bats over three seasons. As a junior last spring, he hit .233 in 39 games.
The semifinalists are scheduled to be named May 30 at the start of NCAA regional play. The finalists will be announced June 6 at the beginning of the super regionals.
The winner will be named during the College World Series, which runs June 14-25 in Omaha, Neb.
The Olson Award is named after former Auburn University pitcher Gregg Olson, who became one of the top college players in the nation after an initial season filled with mixed results. Olson went on to become a two-time All-American, a first-round pick in the major-league draft, the 1989 American League Rookie of the Year and an MLB All Star.
