WACO, Texas (KWTX) - Closer Luke Boyd was named a National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association Third Team All-American, it was announced by the organization on Wednesday.

In 2021, Boyd was tops on the team with a 1.27 ERA in 24 appearances and 28.1 innings pitched as the anchor of the bullpen. Boyd finished with eight saves this year, while only allowing four runs scored and two extra-base hits all season.

This is the 13th NCBWA All-America honor in program history, with Boyd becoming the 12th Bear to earn the distinction.
