STARKVILLE -- In the eyes of the Mississippi State University football coaching staff, Justin Cox is the kind of player that can benefit from spring practice the most.

The Bulldogs also have little time to develop Cox, who only two years of college eligibility left.

Renfroe is constantly working on the finer points of his game so he can have weekends like last week in Lexington, Ky., against then-No.10 University of Kentucky. Despite all of the attention to details, the Mississippi State University outfielder, a nominee for the Golden Spikes Trophy this season, is difficult to please. Sometimes, in fact, it seems nothing is good enough for Renfroe, who is his biggest critic. The constant self-evaluation drives MSU coaches crazy.
