First-team Frizz.

On Monday afternoon, Texas A&M senior first baseman Will Frizzell was named a first-team All-SEC selection as the Southeastern Conference announced its annual baseball awards. Frizzell was the only Aggie to receive all-conference honors after the Maroon & White finished 13th in the league.

As one of the most feared bats in college baseball, Frizzell clubbed 19 home runs (12 against SEC pitching) in his fourth season in Aggieland, finishing third in the SEC and eighth nationally during the regular season. His 19 longballs rank fourth in program history in a single season.

Starting all of Texas A&M’s 56 games at either first base or as the designated hitter, Frizzell posted a .343 batting average. He also scored 46 runs, hit 13 doubles and drove in 50 RBIs. Frizzell’s .686 slugging percentage paced the Southeastern Conference.

Frizzell’s 19 home runs were good for fourth in a single season at Texas A&M.

For his dominant performance against Ole Miss in which he went 7-for-12 with five bombs with 11 RBIs, Frizzell was named the Week 12 National Player of the Week by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, D1Baseball.com, Perfect Game and Collegiate Baseball. His walk-off dinger in the opener and go-ahead grand slam lifted the Aggies to a series victory over the then-No. 12 Rebels.

Frizzell is currently a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Award, which honors the nation’s top collegiate player of the year.

The Rockwall native finished his Texas A&M career with a .292 batting average in 177 games, scoring 102 runs will 33 doubles and 115 RBIs. Frizzell’s 30 home runs put him eighth on Texas A&M’s all-time list.
