Texas Tech Pitcher John Neely Earns Second All-American Honor

Texas Tech junior right-handed pitcher John Neely picked up his second All-America

honor of the season on Thursday when named him an honorable mention All-American as a relief pitcher.

Neely was named a third team All-American by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association back on June 15th, and with this recent honor he becomes the first Red Raider to earn multiple All-American awards in a season since 2005, when Cameron Blair was named to three teams (Collegiate Baseball, NCBWA, USA Today).

He is only the third Red Raider to be named an All-American since 2000, joining Cameron Blair who was recognized in 2004 and 2005, and Josh Brady who picked up All-American recognition in 2004.

Neely set the tone for the Red Raider bullpen this season with a 9-1 record in 30 relief appearances. He finished the year with a 2.97 ERA, seven saves and 56 strikeouts over 60.2 innings of work. He led the team overall in wins, ERA, appearances, saves, strikeouts and opponents batting average (.266).

Neely was also named to a pair of national award watch lists, including the NCBWA Midseason Stopper of the Year list and to the National Pitcher of the Year list. He was one of only five pitchers in the nation to be named to both prestigious lists.
