ECU's Drew Reynolds Named Louisville Slugger All-American

TUSCON, Ariz. – East Carolina junior Drew Reynolds added another piece of hardware to his trophy case when he was named Louisville Slugger Second-Team All-American by Collegiate Baseball, the publication announced Thursday.

The utility player, who earned First-Team All-Conference USA and All-Tournament Team honors last week, Reynolds led the Pirates with a .322 average and 68 hits, while ranking second with 13 doubles and fourth with 30 runs scored.

On the mound the Cherryville, N.C. native posted a 3-2 record with a 2.92 ERA and recorded a league and team-best 14 saves, which also ranks 13th nationally.

In three seasons with the Pirates, Reynolds owns a .313 average (147-for-470) with three home runs, 47 RBI, 21 doubles and 65 RBI. After posting a career-best 14 saves in 2013, he moved into sole possession of second place on the school’s all-time saves list and is three away from breaking Seth Simmons (2008-11) record, which stands at 26.

He is a two-time C-USA Player-of-the-Week selection taking home hitting honors on Mar. 13, 2012 and pitching honors on Apr. 15, 2013. In the classroom, Reynolds is a two-time C-USA All-Academic selection and three-time C-USA Honor Roll member.

Reynolds becomes the sixth All-America selection under head coach Billy Godwin and the first since Kyle Roller and Ryan Wood in 2009.
