Liberty pitcher Shawn Teufel was named to the VaSID University Division All-State Baseball second team, as announced by the Virginia Sports Information Directors (VaSID) this afternoon.

Teufel, who completed his final season this spring with the Flames, was selected to the VaSID All-State second team for the second-consecutive year. Earlier this month, the left-handed pitcher became the 40th player in Liberty history to be taken in the MLB draft. The left-hander was taken in the 25th round by the Detroit Tigers.

Teufel earned Big South All-Conference first-team honors for the second consecutive year this past season, helping the Flames to a school record for victories with a 42-19 mark. He posted a 10-4 record with a 2.44 ERA over 100 1/3 innings of work in his final season in a Liberty uniform. His season win total is the second-most in school history, while his season ERA is the fourth-best for a season. He recorded 92 strikeouts and walked 40 during 15 starts. He also pitched three complete games. Besides his season marks, Teufel also is listed fourth on the Liberty all-time list with a 3.22 career ERA.

The Tequesta, Fla., native led the Big South in innings pitched and complete games, while ranking second in the conference in ERA and strikeouts. Teufel was also third in the league in opponent batting average, as opposing hitters hit just .232 against him.

Teufel was named to the initial College Baseball Foundation's Pitcher of the Year Watch in 2010. The left-hander was also recognized as the Big South Pitcher of the Week for April 29.

George Mason senior shortstop Ryan Soares, a Louisville Slugger All-American first team selection, was the named the state's Player of the Year, while Virginia's Danny Hultzen, a Collegiate Baseball All-American first team member and ACC Pitcher of the Year, was selected as the Pitcher of the Year for the second consecutive year. Virginia Tech head coach Pete Hughes was voted the Coach of the Year, while VMI second baseman Cory Spangenberg was chosen as the Rookie of the Year.
