2015 NFCA All-Americans

The National Fastpitch Coaches Association named the 2015 all-Americans last week. With a few surprises and an influx of SEC and PAC-12 players, as well as quite a number of WCWS participants, the full First Team; Second Team; and Third Team are included below.

The SEC won out in the "most representatives" category, placing nineteen players on the lists. The PAC was not far behind with thirteen. The B1G was represented seven times. The Big 12 and Sun Belt each placed four on the list. A trio of ACC players, two from James Madison in the Colonial Athletic Association, and a single representative of the American Athletic, Southland, and Big West conferences rounded out the lists.

A surprising twelve freshmen earned all-American honors in the first season of their careers. Included in that number is LSU's Carley Hoover, who carries a redshirt.
