Mendoza led FSU with 14 home runs, 52 runs, 62 walks and a .478 on-base percentage. He has started 160 straight games for the Seminoles, dating to his freshman season.

Left-hander Drew Parrish, also a junior, was named to the second team. Flowers also received a third-team honor as an outfielder, joining outfielder Reese Albert and pitcher C.J. Van Eyk on the third team.

Outfielder Robby Martin was named to the all-freshman team.
