STILLWATER, Oklahoma -

For the third time this post season, Oklahoma State pitcher Andrew Heaney has been named to an All-American team.

The most recent award came Wednesday as the OSU lefty was named a 2012 ABCA/Rawlings First-Team All-American.

Heaney is the 15th OSU player to earn First-Team All-America honors from the ABCA and the first since Jeff Guiel in 1996.

Earlier this year, Heaney earned first-team All-American accolades by both Collegiate Baseball and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

The junior southpaw was drafted as the ninth overall pick by Miami in the Major League Baseball First-Year Player Draft.

In 15 starts, Heaney was 8-2 with a 1.60 ERA. He tossed six complete games, including three shutouts, and racked up an NCAA-leading140 strikeouts in 118.1 innings of work. Opponents hit just .180 against him.

An Oklahoma City native, Heaney recorded eight or more strikeouts in 12 of his 15 appearances. He was the first OSU pitcher to reach 100 strikeouts in a season since Matt Smith racked up 114 in 2000, and his 140 punchouts were the fifth most in a single season in OSU history.

Among Big 12 pitchers in 2012, Heaney led the league in ERA, innings pitched, strikeouts, shutouts, complete games and opponent batting average.

This year Heaney was named the Big 12 Conference Pitcher of the Year and an All-Big 12 First Team performer. He was also a semifinalist for the College Baseball Hall of Fame National Pitcher of the Year, the Golden Spikes Award and the Dick Howser Trophy.
