Fresno State's Jordan Luplow was named a second team All-American by Baseball America on Wednesday.

The junior outfielder out of Buchanan High hit .377 this season with nine home runs, 48 RBIs and 40 runs in 57 games. Last week, he was selected in the third round (No. 100 overall) of the MLB draft by the Pittsburgh Pirates.

The 2014 Mountain West Confernce Player of the Year, Luplow previously was named a third team All-American by Louisville Slugger. He also is a finalist for the Gregg Olson Award, which recognizes college baseball's breakout player of the year and will be awarded during the College World Series.

Luplow is the 24th Bulldogs player since 1981 to be named a Baseball America All-American and the first since 2011 when pitcher Greg Gonzales (second team) and outfielder Dusty Robinson (third team) were honored.
