Three Hurricanes Named to All-ACC Academic Team
CORAL GABLES, Fla. – Three Miami Hurricanes football student-athletes were recognized for excellence in the classroom with their selections to the All-ACC Academic Football Team, the conference office announced Wednesday.
Running back Travis Homer, safety Jaquan Johnson and offensive lineman Hayden Mahoney were all honored by the ACC.
Minimum academic requirements for selection to the All-ACC Academic Team are a 3.0 grade point average for the previous semester and a 3.0 cumulative average during one’s academic career. Athletic achievements during the most recent season are also considered in selecting the All-ACC Academic Team.
Homer, who elected to forego his final year of eligibility to enter the NFL Draft, majored in management during his academic career. Mahoney, who made 10 starts in his final year at The U, also majored in management, while Johnson, who was named to the All-ACC Second Team and recently competed in the Reese’s Senior Bowl, majored in human and social development.
The ACC has selected an All-ACC Academic Football Team every year since 1954. The team was chosen from a pool of ACC football student-athletes who were nominated by their schools.
