NSU’s Robinson becomes consensus All-American

Northeastern State’s Cody Robinson became the first consensus All-American in school history Tuesday afternoon when he was named to the 2014 Rawlings/American Baseball Coaches Association All-American Second Team.

The senior outfielder from Sugar Land, Texas, was one of just three members of the MIAA to be named an All-American by the ABCA, as he was joined by Phillip Wilson of Central Oklahoma (First Team) and Ryan Degner of Missouri Western State (Third Team).

Robinson was also the only player in the entire MIAA to be named an All-American by all three organizations. Last week, he was selected to the NCBWA All-American Second Team and was honored as a Daktronics All-American Honorable Mention selection.

Robinson recently collected consensus first team all-region accolades, as he was named to the Central Region first teams by the NCBWA, Daktronics and Rawlings/ABCA. He also earned a Gold Glove award from the NCBWA and landed on the All-MIAA First Team.

He is currently second in the nation in home runs per game (0.36) and third in total home runs (18). He ranks fourth in the NCAA in slugging percentage (.771), ninth in total bases (135), and 20th in doubles (19). He also finished the season with 47 runs batted in.

Robinson had a banner year in 2014, raising his batting average 46 points from a year ago to .354 (.308 last season). He also improved his on-base percentage from .396 to .440 and raised his slugging percentage from .674 to .771. He added nine more hits (62 this season) and two more home runs to his total from last year.

Robinson is the ninth student-athlete at Northeastern State to be named an All-American since NSU joined the MIAA prior to the 2012-13 academic year (full list below).
