More All-American honors rolled in for Mississippi State pitcher Dakota Hudson and outfielder Jake Mangum over the weekend.

Both were named Rawlings third team All-Americans by the American Baseball Coaches Association. It is the first time two Bulldogs have been ABCA All-Americans since Eric DuBose and Rob Hauswald were in 1996.

It was the fifth All-American honor for Hudson, who signed a $2 million contract with the St. Louis Cardinals on Saturday after being drafted in the first round.

It was also the fifth All-American selection for Mangum, who leads the Southeastern Conference with a .408 batting average as a freshman.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
