DALLAS – Oklahoma State’s Justin Campbell and Jake Thompson are 2022 NCBWA All-Americans, with Campbell earning first-team honors and Thompson being named to the third team.

Campbell’s selection puts him in elite company as he becomes the 27th first-team All-American in OSU program history. He is the sixth Cowboy to achieve that status in the Josh Holliday head coaching era.

With the addition of Campbell and Thompson, Cowboy Baseball now counts 124 All-America selections in its history.

Campbell made 17 appearances on the mound this season and was 9-2 with a 3.82 ERA while tossing a pair of complete games. The sophomore right-hander ranks among the nation’s leaders in strikeouts this season with 141 in 101 1/3 innings. That total is the fifth-highest season total in program history, and he became only the fourth Cowboy to record 100-plust strikeouts in season twice in a career.

Among his many accolades this season, Campbell was the NCBWA District 6 Co-Player of the Year and semifinalist for both the Golden Spikes Award and Dick Howser Trophy. He posted double digit strikeouts in six of his 16 starts, and he struck out at least eight in 11 games. The 2022 season saw him move into seventh place on OSU’s all-time strikeouts list with 265 career punchouts.

Thompson capped his collegiate career with a season that saw him post impressive offensive numbers as he led the Cowboys with a .350 batting average, 20 doubles and 67 RBIs while also topping the team in hits (89), total bases (155), slugging percentage (.610), on-base percentage (.453) and walks (44).

The only Cowboy to start all 64 games this season, 60 of those in left field, Thompson was a semifinalist for the Dick Howser Trophy and earned spots on the All-Big 12 First Team and ABCA/Rawlings All-Central Region First Team.

Thompson ended his three-year OSU career with a .345 batting average, 18 homers, 34 doubles and 114 RBIs in 121 games.
