Aaron Murray Named to 2013 Capital One Academic All-America First Team

UGA senior quarterback Aaron Murray has been named to the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America® first team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced on Thursday.

Murray is among 24 players that were named to the first team. Senior center Gabe Ikard of Oklahoma was selected as the 2013 Capital One Academic All-America® of the Year for Division I football.

From the release:

A graduate student in psychology with a perfect 4.00 G.P.A., Murray has been named as a Walter Camp National Player of the Week twice this season. A native of Tampa, Fla., he won a NFF Scholar-Athlete Award and is a finalist for the Campbell Trophy. He is the Southeastern Conference career record holder in passing yards, total offense and touchdowns (115). One of 11 players selected to the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, he is a two-time Wuerffel Trophy and Unitas Award finalist.

This is the fourth straight season that a UGA player has been named to the Academic All-America team. Punter Drew Butler obtained the honors in 2010 and 2011, and snapper Ty Frix and Aaron Murray were awarded last year.

Aaron Murray, who tore his ACL on Senior Night vs. Kentucky, finished the 2013 season 225-of-347 for 3,075 yards, 26 touchdown passes and nine interceptions. Murray also rushed 53 times for 186 yards and seven touchdowns.

Murray leaves UGA as the SEC career-leader in touchdown passes, total offense, passing yards and completions.
