Collegiate All-Americans & Postseason Awards

Vincent Cervino      Craig Cozart     

Player of the Year: Charlie Condon, Georgia
 In a season filled with epic individual offensive performances, Charlie Condon stood out from the crowd with his bat-to-ball skills and otherworldly power. The 6-6/216 junior, infielder from Marietta, GA has walked into the ballpark virtually every game this year as the marked man and delivered time and time again. Showing elite strike zone discipline, and an innate ability to think along with opposing pitchers, Condon uses the whole field to do damage. Heading into Monday nights Super Regional decisive Game 3, he is sitting on 99 hits for the year, good for a .436 BA, to go with a SLG% of 1.009, OB% of .559 good for an amazing 1.568 OPS. He has collected 20 doubles, 1 triple and set the BBCOR era single season record for home runs with 36 to date to go with an amazing 57:39 strikeout-to-walk ratio. On a national level, he leads the nation in batting average, home runs, home runs per-game and slugging percentage. He is the front runner to go 1:1 in the coming MLB Amateur Draft and has the look of a player that will make a quick ascent through the system on his way to a long Big-League career.
 

Pitcher of the Year: Hagen Smith, Arkansas

Separating himself from the pack with his first start of the year, Hagen Smith sent notice to the college world that he was the alpha starting pitcher in 2024. The 6-3/225 LHP from Bullard, TX proved to be an elite competitor and often made his best pitches when batters managed to reach base, which didn’t happen often. Featuring two of the most dominant pitches in the nation, he used a mid-to-upper 90s fastball and a mid-to-upper 80s slider to eliminate contact at an eyepopping level. In 16 starts this season, he went (9-2) with a 2.04 ERA and logged a total of 84.0 innings pitched. Showing just how difficult it was to find the barrel against him, he only allowed 41 hits all year good for an opponent’s BA of .144 and only he only allowed 22 runs over those 16 starts. His calling card is the ability to create swing and miss as seen with his 161 strikeouts while only surrendering 34 free passes. Smith leads the nation in hits allowed per nine innings, strikeouts per nine innings, and is second in the nation in total strikeouts for the year. There is plenty of anticipation that the big lefty will be the first arm off the board in this year’s MLB Draft.




Two-Way Player of the Year: Jac Caglianone, Florida

For the second year in a row, Caglianone has run away with this award and took things to another level with his comprehensive skillset. The 6-5/250 physically imposing lefty from Tampa, FL refined his game this year by improving his bat head accuracy and dialing in the strike zone on the mound. After setting the BBCOR single season home run record a year ago, Cags put together an even more impressive offensive season metrically speaking. Heading to the College World series, he is batting .411 with 33 home runs and 68 RBI while slugging .860, reaching base over 50% of his at-bats and accumulating an OPS of 1.392 so far. One of the most improvements of the year is the fact that he strikes out only about 10% of his ABs and put together a 52: 25 strikeout-to-walk ratio and handled left-handed pitchers just as well as righties. On the mound, he is currently (5-2) in his 15 starts with a 4.71 ERA and limited opponents to a .225 batting average. While he can still run the fastball into the upper-90s, he dialed things back a bit and put more value on location and secondary offering this year. In 72.2 IP so far, he has a strikeout-to-walk ration of 82:48 and has minimized damage by blending his pitches at a high level. With his physicality and line-to-line power from the left side of the plate, Caglianone is also a strong candidate to be the first pick in July’s MLB Draft.


Freshman of the Year: Drew Burress, Georgia Tech

Well known as a hitter at the high school level, it was generally expected that Burress would make a smooth transition to the college game. But he had other ideas as he took the world by storm, putting together an incredible freshman campaign with the bat and showing he is a gold-glove type defender as well. The 5-9/180 outfielder from Houston County, GA played an outstanding center field and swung one of the most potent bats in the nation regardless of class. With a compact stroke and the uncanny ability to get the good part of the bat to the ball, the righty finished his season with a .381 BA, a SLG% of .821 and OB% of .512 all told. With elite strike zone discipline, Burress collected 58 walks on the year while only striking out only 37 times. He never compromised bat speed and did damage at the dish with 15 doubles, 3 triples, 25 home runs and drove in 67 runs while swiping 8 bases too. Burress will be one of the top-returning players to watch for the 2025 player of the year race.

Coach of the Year: Nick Mingione, Kentucky

In his 7th season at the helm in Lexington, Mingione has led the Wildcats program to the promised land in Omaha, NE as they will make their first ever appearance in the Men’s College World Series. Mingione has been on staff for all three of the Super Regionals the program has hosted and broke through this year as they defeated Oregon State last weekend. It was a banner year all around for the Wildcats as they have won 45-games thus far and took home a share of the SEC Regular Season title after going (22-8) in league play. They finished the regular season with the No. 1 RPI in the nation with a strength of schedule of No. 4 and only lost 2-SEC series all year. A credit to the culture and approach he has instilled in his players; you won’t really find them ranked in the Top-50 in any team category, but this team just knows how to win games within their system. This roster has length and experience, so don’t expect them just to show up and be content with their first trip to Omaha, they could make some serious noise.

Team of the Year: Tennessee Volunteers

Consensus No. 1 team in the nation in every poll, awarded the No. 1 National Seed, shared a part of the SEC Regular Season crown and ran through the SEC Tournament to take the championship; not much more needs to be said about the Tennessee Volunteers. They are (55-12) heading into the College World Series and won a mind-blowing 40-games on their home turf in 2024. Only losing one series all year, they only lost back-to-back games one time and went (22-8) in conference play. Offensively, they batted .310 as a team, 20th in the nation, hit 150 doubles and led the nation with 173 home runs. They also led the nation with 617 runs scored, good for an average of 9.2 runs per game and are currently 2nd in the nation with a .613 SLG%. Defensively, they are 3rd in the nation with a 3.38 team ERA, 2nd in the nation in strikeout-to-walk ratio at 3.41, 4th in the nation at 2.96 walks per nine and 2nd in the nation in WHIP at 1.23 to date. There isn’t a more complete team, they have star-power and length to the roster and are playing their most confident, quality version of the game right now. The Volunteers are primed and ready to make a run at the National Championship in Omaha.
