From UA Sports Information:

Alabama closer Thomas Burrows garnered Louisville Slugger Freshman All-American honors as announced by Collegiate Baseball on Wednesday. Burrows, who finished his freshman season with a 4-2 record and a 2.15 ERA with a team-leading 11 saves, was one of nine players selected as relief pitchers to the All-America team.

Burrows, a 6-1, 220-pound native of Florence, Ala., was 11-for-11 in save opportunities in 2014. His 11 saves rank tied for fourth in program history in a single season, and are the second most in a season for an Alabama freshman. He led the team with 24 appearances, totaling 37.2 innings pitched with 34 strikeouts. He allowed a total of nine runs in his first season at the Capstone, while holding opponents to a .192 average, allowing just 24 hits all season.

Burrows was also selected to the Southeastern Conference All-Freshman Team, and was named to the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association (NCBWA) Mid-Season Stopper of the Year and Collegiate Baseball Hall of Fame Pitcher of the Year watch Lists.
