(Springfield, VA) was named one of 10 finalists for the second-annual Tom Walter College Baseball Inspiration Award on Thursday. The award is named for Wake Forest Head Coach Tom Walter, who donated a kidney to outfielder Kevin Jordan prior to the 2011 season. The winner of the award will be announced on August 21.

Kent recorded a save at Maryland in the first game of a doubleheader on April 21, 2012. Two days later, he endured a six-hour bone marrow transplant for his ailing brother, Matt, who is battling Hodgkin's Lymphoma.

On the season, Kent was 1-2 with two saves and a 3.76 ERA in 38.1 innings pitched over 21 appearances (one start). Kent was an ACC Academic Honor Roll member as well.

"I think about the pain he's going through, pain he's been through the last three years now," Kent told The Post & Courier in May. "He's a fighter, and that's what I'm trying to be.”
