AUSTIN, Texas — The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) have selected Ryan Enos of the Oswego State baseball team to its 2019 Google Cloud Academic All-America First Team. Enos is the second CoSIDA Academic All-American in Oswego State Athletics history, both coming from the baseball team in the past five seasons. Dan Saccocio was a first team honoree as an outfielder in 2015, while Enos makes the 2019 squad as an infielder.
With two All-Region nods, an All-SUNY Athletic Conference first-team citation and the Most Valuable Player award for the SUNYAC tournament, this honor combines his already honored athletic ability with Enos’ academic prowess. Despite being a sophomore athletically, the Oriskany native already has enough credits to be classified as a junior while boasting a 4.0 grade-point average. The wellness management major is one of only 33 baseball players in Division III to be Academic All-America, one of just 11 on first team and one of just eight to hold a 4.0.
The third baseman’s offensive acumen is what draws the most attention on the diamond, as Enos ranks inside the top five of 13 statistical categories in the SUNYAC. During league play, the sophomore led all batters with 26 hits, nearly half of his total output for the season. Of those 13 categories, Enos paced the Lakers in five, including batting average (.356), runs (47), hits (58), doubles (14) and total bases (89).
