TALLAHASSEE, Fla. – Freshman Jack Maguire was named as a second team All-American by Golfweek Tuesday morning. He becomes the first freshman on the men’s golf team to be named an All-American at Florida State.
“This was the goal I set for myself in the beginning of the year,” said Maguire. “To achieve it is an amazing accomplishment. I could not have done so without Coach Jones and everyone else that helped me along the way.”
In six of the past eight years, a Seminole has been named an All-American. Maguire is one of only three freshmen to be named to the first or second team by Golfweek this year.
“Second team is a great honor for a freshman,” said head coach Trey Jones. “Jack improved throughout the year and should only continue to improve.”
Maguire led the team this year with a 70.92 stroke average. He won the USF Invitational and Mason Rudolph Championships this year and finished tied for fourth at the ACC Championship.
The St. Petersburg, Fla., native had eight top ten finishes as he was named the ACC Freshman of the Year and to the 2014 Palmer Cup. Maguire finished the season ranked No. 20 in the Golfweek/Sagarin College rankings.
