MOUNT BERRY, Ga. - Berry College's Daniel Alligood has been selected to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District At-Large Team for his combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
This is Alligood's second straight honor, coming after he was named the Berry College Co-Scholar Athlete of the Year with a perfect 4.0 grade-point-average in Biochemistry and Mathematics.
To be eligible for Academic All-America consideration, a student-athlete must be a varsity starter or key reserve, maintain a cumulative G.P.A. of 3.30 on a scale of 4.00, have reached sophomore athletic and academic standings at his/her current institution and be nominated by his/her sports information director. Since the program's inception in 1952, CoSIDA has bestowed Academic All-America honors on more than 20,000 student-athletes in Divisions I, II, III and NAIA, covering all NCAA championship sports.
First-team Academic All-District honorees, including Alligood, advance to the Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
