Samford's Heath Quinn made an immediate impact on the college baseball diamond.

The Bulldogs freshman outfielder, who attended Oak Mountain High School in Birmingham, is the Southern Conference Player of the Week after collecting 10 hits in the team's season opening series against Valparaiso.

Quinn had at least three hits in every game and finished the weekend 10-for-12 with four doubles and six RBIs.

Samford dropped two of three to Valparaiso. The Bulldogs host a three game series with Memphis beginning on Friday.
