Former Auburn star Hunter Morris won his second straight Southern League player of the month award.

Morris, a first baseman with his hometown Huntsville Stars, hit .340 with 10 home runs, 25 RBIs and 16 runs scored in 28 July games.

He's the first back-to-back winner since Delmon Young for the Biscuits in 2005.
