Gossett named third-team All-American

By

By Staff Report.

Junior righthander Daniel Gossett (Lyman, SC) was named a preseason third-team All-American by NCBWA on Wednesday.  The Second-Team All-ACC selection had a 10-4 record and 2.56 ERA in 98.1 innings pitched over 16 starts as a sophomore in 2013.  He allowed only 78 hits (.213 opponents’ batting average) with 91 strikeouts and was in the top 10 in the ACC in wins, starts, opponents’ batting average, strikeouts, innings pitched, and ERA.  Gossett became the first Tiger since 2002 to record double-digit victories as well.
In two seasons in a Tiger uniform, Gossett has a 16-7 record, two saves, and a 3.34 ERA along with a .216 opponents’ batting average and 178 strikeouts.  His 9.14 career strikeouts-per-nine-innings-pitched mark is ninth-best in Clemson history.
Gossett will be a leading candidate to take the mound when the Tigers open the 2014 season against Eastern Michigan on February 14.
