ABCA/Rawlings All-Region Teams

WASHINGTON - Recent George Washington baseball graduate Bobby Campbell, along with rising-junior Will Kobos and rising-sophomore Elliott Raimo were all awarded for their respective standout seasons by being named to the American Baseball Coaches Association (ABCA)/Rawlings All-East Region Second Team, the organization announced this week.

The trio's selection to the ABCA/Rawlings All-East Region is the third consecutive year that GW has had players represented and the second year in a row that multiple players have been honored.

Campbell concluded his standout four-year career by being named the Colonials' Most Valuable Player for 2017. The Olney, Maryland, native led GW and ranked fourth in the Atlantic 10 with a .355 batting average across 58 games this season. He totaled a team-best eight home runs, 43 RBIs and 15 doubles. He also finished with 78 hits on the season with 26 walks while slugging .532. Campbell struck out just 14 times over 220 at-bats this season, making him the 15th-toughest player to strike out in all of Division I at a rate of once every 15.7 at-bats.

Campbell leaves GW ranking second all-time in games played (218), fourth in at-bats (806), seventh in doubles (49) and eighth in hits (249).

Kobos pitched in a team-high 24 games this past season and led the team with a 1.99 ERA across 40.2 innings of work. Pitching primarily out of the bullpen, he posted a 4-1 record with three saves while limiting opponents to a .188 batting average with 42 strikeouts against just 15 walks. A member of the Atlantic 10 All-Academic Team, Kobos finished conference games with a 17-to-8 strikeout-to-walk ratio while conference opponents batted just .161 against him.

 

 

Raimo was named to the Atlantic 10 All-Rookie Team after a standout freshman season as the Colonials' top starting pitcher. A three-time A-10 Rookie of the Week and one-time Pitcher of the Week during the regular season, Raimo led GW and ranked second in the conference with eight victories. He pitched to a 3.20 ERA on the season with a team-best 73 strikeouts and two complete games. Against A-10 opponents, he pitched to a 5-2 record with a 2.50 ERA with 50 strikeouts against just 13 walks.
