James McMahon Named to Second All-America Squad
HATTIESBURG, Miss. - Southern Miss senior right-handed pitcher James McMahon added to his postseason honors collection Wednesday with a pair of accolades.
McMahon, who posted an 11-1 record with a 1.56 ERA during the 2015 season, was named to his second All-American squad by earning a third-team nod by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.
The Hattiesburg, Miss., native already had captured the C Spire Ferriss Trophy for top collegiate baseball player in the state of Mississippi and was a Louisville Slugger/Collegiate Baseball second-team All-American.
He is the first Golden Eagle to earn All-America recognition by two different media outlets since catcher Brad Wilcutt was named to two different teams in 2005. McMahon is also the first selection by the NCBWA since shortstop B.A. Vollmuth collected third-team honors in 2010.
In addition, McMahon was named to the American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings second team All-South Region at starting pitcher. The teams are voted on by members of the ABCA. The ABCA/Rawlings All-America team was first recognized in 1949 and is the oldest All-America team in college baseball.
