In a span of eight days, Youngstown State baseball player Drew Dosch repeated as a Second-Team Academic All-American and was drafted by the Baltimore Orioles in the seventh round. Dosch's successes earned him eighth place on the list of top 10 moments and storylines of YSU athletics in 2012-13.
Dosch became the first student-athlete in school history to earn Second-Team Academic All-America honors twice. An integrated social studies education major, Dosch finished his junior year with a 3.97 grade-point average.
On the baseball field, Dosch earned First-Team All-Horizon League honors at third base for the second straight season. He led the league with a .434 on-base percentage and a .922 OPS while also ranking among the top five with a .338 batting average, 40 runs, 68 hits, .488 slugging percentage and 15 doubles.
When the Orioles selected Dosch as the 23rd pick of the Major League Baseball draft on June 7, he became the fourth-highest draft choice in school history. Only one position player, Chris Durkin in the third round in 1991, has been selected higher.
