Diefenbach was tabbed Academic Player of the Year to headline the All-Academic team. A graduate student from Victoria, Texas, he leads the league in wins with a 9-3 record including a stretch with seven straight LSC victories. Diefenbach has appeared in 13 games with a 3.10 ERA.
Diefenbach was joined by Javelina teammate Dallas Ponder; Angelo State's David Goggin and Christian Summers; Tarleton State's Alvaro Moreno; Cameron's Brad Blumer; West Texas A&M's Scott Cone and Tyler McKnight; and Eastern New Mexico's Rafael Romo.
