Alek Manoah keeps adding to his trophy collection following a historic season for WVU baseball. 

The Toronto Blue Jays prospect landed on a sixth All-America team Saturday when the American Baseball Coaches Association named him to its second team. 

Manoah is now the first player in WVU history to be named to more than five All-America teams in a single season, and joins Jedd Gyorko as the only Mountaineers to earn at least five career All-America honors. Gyorko earned eight from 2008-10. 

Each of Manoah’s previous five All-America nods this season were first-team accolades. He is the only player in program history to earn first-team honors three or more times in the same season. 

Before being drafted by the Blue Jays with the No. 11 overall pick in the 2019 MLB Draft, Manoah became the Big 12 pitcher of the year after breaking West Virginia’s single-season strikeouts record.
