Oklahoma Baptist University first baseman Josh Collazo became OBU’s second two-time baseball All-America, it was announced Thursday night.
Collazo is on the team as an infielder on the second team. It is only the second time a Bison baseball player has made the All-America list twice. The only other to do so was Gene Hacker, who made second team in 1964 and first team in 1965.
Collazo belted a school-record 24 home runs after establishing the record last year with 22. He also led OBU with a .419 batting average and 69 RBI. Collazo was a first-team All-SAC selection.
He ends his two-year career with the Bison with the school record for season (24) and career (46) home runs, season RBI (100) and season runs scored (79). He is a two-time All-SAC, 2008 SAC Player of the Year and 2008 SAC Gold Glove first baseman.
He also is third all-time on OBU’s career batting average list at .420. and RBI at 169.
