AUSTIN, Texas - Junior Caleb Hutson has named second team Academic All-America in selections announced Wednesday by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Hutson, a 3.87 student as a sport management major, is the third Shenandoah University football player to be named Academic All-America and the 20th student-athlete overall. Hutson joins Kyle Feldman '12, '14 D.PT and Nick Erdman '13, '15 M.AT as Academic All-America selections from the football program.

The Fairfax, Virginia native is the second SU student-athlete in the past eight days to be named Academic AA. Alex Wessel '18 was named to the women's soccer All-America team last week.

Shenandoah has had at least one student-athlete named Academic All-America in each of the past 11 years.

With Hutson anchoring the offensive line from his center position, Shenandoah led the nation this season with 3925 passing yards and 41 passing touchdowns. SU quarterbacks were sacked just 14 times despite attempting 535 passes.

Hutson has earned Dean's List honors four times, President's List twice and to the Academic All-ODAC squad in both 2015-16 and 2016-17.

This season, he was named third team All-ODAC as an offensive lineman.

"This is a very special honor for Caleb," Head Football Coach Scott Yoder said. "He continually is one of our hardest workers on our team, not just on the field, but in the classroom as well. I am very happy to see him recognized for his work."

To be eligible for Academic All-America honors, student-athletes must have at least a 3.3 GPA on a 4.0 scale and be a starter or important reserve on their team. Nominees are voted on in one of eight national districts by CoSIDA members with first team All-District honorees moving on to the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.

Hutson is one of three student-athletes from the ODAC to be named to the Academic All-America squad. League champion Washington and Lee had two athletes selected on defense.
