TUCSON, Ariz. - As announced by Collegiate Baseball Newspaper, Fresno State outfielder Jordan Luplow has been named a Third-Team Louisville Slugger NCAA Division-I All-American selection. Luplow is the first Bulldog to receive the same distinction since 2011 when Greg Gonzales (first-team) and Dusty Robinson (third-team) were recipients of the organization's honor.
Dating back to 1989, Luplow becomes the 15th Louisville Slugger All-American selection, as named by the Collegiate Baseball Newspaper.
Luplow is joined by San Diego State closer Michael Cederoth who garnered first-team honors, while UNLV starter Erick Fedde was placed on the second-team to round out selections from the Mountain West.
Now that the 2014 season has come to a close, the postseason accolades continue to build for the Clovis, Calif. native. Luplow was named the Mountain West Player of the Year on May 21, and this week he was named a Golden Spikes and Gregg Olson Award semifinalist.
Luplow finished the season with a .377 batting average, while scoring 40 runs and driving in 48 in 57 games played. The junior outfielder recorded 21 doubles, one triple, nine home runs and 36 walks during the year.
