Thursday January 24, 201320 Gator Football Players Named to SEC Academic Honor Roll

Gainesville, Fla.

Twenty University of Florida football players were named to the 2012 Southeastern Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll on Thursday by league commissioner Mike Slive.

It marks the second year in a row that the Gators have had 20 or more players named to the SEC Honor Roll. In 2011, the first year under head coach Will Muschamp, Florida had 22 players honored.

In addition to the 20 players on the honor roll, there were eight football players who earned their degrees in December.

The 2012 Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on grades from the 2012 Spring, Summer and Fall terms.

Any student-athlete who participates in a Southeastern Conference championship sport or a student-athlete who participates in a sport listed on his/her institution’s NCAA Sports Sponsorship Form is eligible for nomination to the Academic Honor Roll. The following criteria should be followed: (1) A student-athlete must have a grade point average of 3.00 or above for either the preceding academic year (two semesters or three quarters) or have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution. (2) If a student-athlete attends summer school, his/her grade point average during the summer academic term must be included in the calculation used to determine eligibility for the Academic Honor Roll. (3) Student-athletes eligible for the Honor Roll include those receiving an athletics scholarship, recipients of an athletics award (i.e., letterwinner), and non-scholarship student-athletes who have been on a varsity team for two seasons. (4) Prior to being nominated, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a baccalaureate degree at the nominating institution. (5) The student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport’s entire NCAA Championship segment.
