What a tremendous honor for Peyton to be an All-American," WSU coach Alex Sogard said in a team release. “It comes as no surprise that he is regarded as one of the best outfielders in the country. He is such a great representation of our program. I'm extremely proud of him and all the hard work he's put into earn this accolade.”
