Oswego State baseball player Ryan Enos was selected to the 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-America First Team by the College Sports Information Directors of America, as announced by CoSIDA on June 4.
The sophomore third baseman from Oriskany became the second Oswego State athlete to ever garner the accolade, joining fellow baseball player Dan Saccocio (2015). Despite his standing as a sophomore for NCAA eligibility, Enos has completed enough credits to qualify as a junior academically and boasts a 4.00 grade-point average, according to the Oswego State athletic website.
Enos, a wellness management major, is one of 33 NCAA Division III baseball to be selected as an Academic All-American and of the 11 players chosen for the first team, he is one of just eight that has maintained a GPA of 4.00.
Enos also received recognition on two All-Region teams, made the All-SUNYAC first team, and was named the Most Valuable Player of the SUNYAC Championship for his role in the Lakers’ title victory. He led Oswego in batting average (.356), hits (58), doubles (14), total bases (89) and runs scored (47), and finished in the top five among SUNYAC players for 13 different stat categories.
Enos highlighted several Oswego State standouts that recently received postseason awards.
He was also one of five Oswego State baseball players that were honored when All-Region teams were announced by the American Baseball Coaches Association/Rawlings and D3baseball.com on May 29.
Enos was a unanimous All-NY Second Team selection while Lukas Olsson and Mike Dellicarri were each chosen to the third team by both outlets. Seniors Nick DeMarco and Brandon Nicholson were each named to the ABCA/Rawlings second team and the D3baseball.com third team.
