Wes Rea knows how good he is, but it's something that's not on his mind all the time.
The Mississippi State junior first baseman tries to be humble a good bit and it is evident when he was selected as a team captain for the second year in a row.
The recognition is a big deal to him, but Rea sees it as a way to help the team.
"It's a tremendous honor," Rea said. "For the guys to look up to me like that and know they can come to me in tough situations, it means a lot. It's an honor, but at the same time, I don't put myself above anyone on the team and they don't think that either."
