Praise for Pawlowski
John Pawlowski, Auburn
How he got here: The Tigers were attracted to Pawlowski a couple years ago because of his ability to make College of Charleston a consistent winner. Well, it didn’t take Pawlowski long to bring a winning attitude to the plains. Pawlowski guided the program to 31 wins in his first season, but took a huge step forward in ’10 with the program’s first SEC tournament appearance since ’03 and an NCAA regional appearance. AU fell short of reaching the CWS, but a statement already was made. Pawlowski plans to have the Tigers competing for big things in the future. AU finished the ’10 campaign with an impressive 43-21 record.
