NSU outfielder Cody Robinson lands All-American honors

Cody Robinson was honored as a 2014 NCBWA Second Team All-American, the National Collegiate Baseball Writer’s Association announced Thursday evening.

The senior outfielder from Sugar Land, Texas, was one of three members of the MIAA to be named an All-American by the organization, as he joined Phillip Wilson of Central Oklahoma (First Team) and Anthony Pacheco of Nebraska-Kearney (Honorable Mention).

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. He also became just the second NSU baseball player in NSU’s NCAA Division II era to land All-American honors (Nick Zodrow, 2003).

  • Sooners shifting several positions

    Experience comes from encountering the same things in the same ways over and over again. Oklahoma’s Geneo Grissom and Julian Wilson have that at defensive end and nickleback in bunches.
    However, both will be seeing new things when practice begins. Grissom is moving to outside linebacker. Wilson will be getting a look at cornerback as his senior season begins
