Micah Dallas, a native of Aubrey, capped his strong first season in college baseball by earning D1 Baseball Freshman All-American second team honors.
Dallas, a starting pitcher for Texas Tech this last season, went 7-2 this year in 19 appearances, including 13 starts, for the Red Raiders. In 76 innings, he recorded 84 strikeouts and allowed 74 hits and 28 walks to go with a 4.03 earned run average, according to the school’s website. He won his first seven decisions of the season, making him the only freshman from a Power Five conference to do so.
Dallas started Texas Tech’s first game in the College World Series in Omaha, Nebraska. He allowed six hits and three earned runs in three innings in taking the loss against Michigan on June 15. Dallas also started against Michigan later in the CWS, losing after pitching one innings.
Dallas was the No. 22 ranked pitcher in Texas and a 2018 preseason All-American honorable mention selection by Perfect Game during his time as part of the Texas Homeschool Educators Sports Association.
