Washington pitcher Jeff Heaverlo has been named a second-team All-American today by USA Today Baseball Weekly.
Heaverlo, a junior from Ephrata, Wash., has set numerous records during his three-year Washington career. The right-hander is 10-3 this season with 123 strikeouts in 104 innings. His single-season strikeouts total, as well has his career total (295) are both UW school records. He is also the career leader in starts and innings pitched and has a chance to tie the Husky record for wins in a season when he starts Saturday in the regular season finale against Washington State.
Heaverlo is one of only four Pac-10 players to make the first and second teams. He is joined by first- teamers Barry Zito (pitcher, USC), Jason Lane (OF, USC) and second-teamer Andrew Beinbrink (3B, Arizona State). Nevada outfielder Lyle Overbay, a graduate of Centralia (Wash.) High, also made the second team.
