June 18, 2010

OMAHA, Neb. – A pair of Florida State student-athletes were honored for their outstanding efforts on the field in 2010 as juniors Mike McGee and Tyler Holt were honored as All-Americans.

McGee was named a first team All-American as a utility player by both Baseball America and the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association, while Holt was named a second team All-American by Baseball America. Both Seminoles played a major role in leading Florida State back to the College World Series for the 20th time in school history.

McGee earns the distinction of becoming FSU’s first, first-team All-American in 2010. The junior from Port St. Lucie, Fla., has once again been an outstanding two-way player for the Seminoles this season. McGee has played in every game for Florida State this year making 59 starts in left field while hitting .328 with 78 hits, 14 doubles, 15 home runs and 68 RBI. He currently leads the team in home runs and RBI, while ranking third in hits.

On the mound, McGee has stepped in nicely as the Seminole closer posting a 4-0 record with 12 saves and a 1.37 ERA. The right hander has registered 26.1 innings in 18 appearances allowing just five runs, four earned, while posting 33 strikeouts. McGee has given up only 11 hits and is holding opponents to a .125 average. In his first and only start of the season back on March 8 at Jacksonville, McGee no-hit the Dolphins over 6.0 innings. McGee’s 12 saves are tied for the third most in a single-season at Florida State.

Holt picks up his second, second team All-America award this year. The junior from Gainesville, Fla., has started all 65 games for the Seminoles in centerfield this year and has started every game since arriving on campus in 2008, a streak of 196 consecutive starts – the longest active streak in the nation. Holt is currently hitting .352 with 87 hits, including 26 doubles and three triples, while driving in 46 runs. Holt established a season-high recording 12 home runs in 2010, while ranking among the league leaders in runs (82), walks (56) and stolen bases (30). He has also turned in another stellar defensive effort in centerfield posting a .994 fielding percentage committing just one error in 155 chances. Holt leads the team in outfield assists with five.
