The Baltimore Orioles No. 1 overall draft pick Adley Rutschman's list of accolades continued to grow this week, after the catcher added four awards to his resume over the past weeks.
Thursday he was named a Rawling's Gold Glove winner, the second one ever in Oregon State history.
On Monday, the College Baseball Foundation named Rutschman to the first team of their inaugural All-American team.
A week prior, Baseball America named the Oregon State catcher the National Player of the Year and to the first team All-American.
Then on Thursday, Rutschman won USA Baseball's Golden Spikes Award, given to the best amateur baseball player in the country.
But Rutschman's award-winning wasn't done: Friday, he was named the Dick Howser Trophy recipient, the honor given to college baseball's National Player of the Year and presented by the National Collegiate Baseball Writers Association.
Rutschman led the Beavers in 10 offensive categories after their 2019 campaign, including batting average (.411), home runs (17) and walks (76).
When Baltimore drafted Rutschman No. 1 overall in the 2019 MLB Draft, the catcher made history as the first Oregon State Beaver drafted with the first overall pick.
No stranger to the record books, Rutschman put up Oregon State's most career walks (156), second-most RBIs (174) and third-most runs (151). As such, the power-hitter was also named Collegiate Baseball's Player of the Year.
A strong defender, the catcher tallied 1,500 career put-outs in his three seasons as a Beaver and finished his junior campaign with a .989 fielding percentage.
Rutschman was named the Pac-12 co-defensive player of the year, as well as player of the year and batting champion.The Pac-12 also named the Beaver to the All-Conference and All-Defensive teams after his stellar 2019 performance.
In 2018 as a sophomore, Rutschman was named the NCAA College World Series Most Outstanding Player after assisting in Oregon State's championship victory with a record 17 hits.
Rutschman is also a finalist for the Buster Posey Award, the winner of which will be announced later in June.
