There's only one word to describe Vance Honeycutt's career as a member of the UNC baseball program:


With his solo home run against Coastal Carolina on Tuesday night, Honeycutt became the first Diamond Heel ever to record 50 home runs and 50 stolen bases in his career. Check out Honeycutt's historic swing below.

In addition to making UNC baseball history, Honeycutt also accomplished something that no other ACC player has done before.

When you look at the record books, Honeycutt stands alone in the 50-60 club: meaning, 50 home runs to go along with 60 stolen bases.

Ever since he stepped on campus, Honeycutt has made quite the name for himself. He quickly became one of the country's top overall players, as he continues to prove why he'll likely be a first round pick in this year's Major League Baseball draft.

As impressive as he is at the plate, Honeycutt also has consistently flashed the leather as well. When you look at the college baseball landscape, not many players, if any at all, make the impact that Honeycutt does in all aspects of the game.

From hitting home runs to stealing bases to saving runs, Vance Honeycutt is one of the best players to ever wear the Carolina blue uniform. This historic feat is just another reminder of how special his career has been, as he hopes that plenty more home runs are to come over the next few weeks.

Now in sole possession of second place on the UNC baseball program's all-time home run list, could Honeycutt get hot down the stretch and challenge the all-time record?

Knowing Honeycutt, it definitely could be possible.
