Sullins Caps Career With All-America Honor

Landon Sullins has become the fourth student-athlete in the history of the baseball program at Arkansas Tech University to earn All-America accolades.

Sullins (photographed), a senior catcher from Valley Springs, was named a 2012 honorable mention All-America selection by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.

He joins Tommy Hester (1976), John Paul Davis (2001) and Matt Johnson (2011) as the only Wonder Boys baseball All-America selections in the 70-season history of the program.

Sullins hit .363 with three home runs and 43 RBIs in 2012. He was named to the All-Great American Conference first team.

He had a 22-game hitting streak from March 9-April 28. It was the longest hitting streak by a Wonder Boy this season.

Sullins led all GAC players in base hits (73) and was second in the league in runs scored (51) this season. He threw out 18 would-be base stealers in 2012, second-most in the GAC.

Sullins’ 73 hits in 2012 are tied for seventh-most in a single season in Tech baseball history.

He finished his four-year Arkansas Tech career among the top seven players on Tech’s all-time career lists for base hits, runs scored, runs batted in, doubles and total bases.

The Wonder Boys finished the 2012 season with an overall record of 26-27. Arkansas Tech made its third consecutive postseason baseball appearance in 2012, the longest such streak for the program since 1997-99.
