ATLANTA--Georgia State football standouts Michael Davis and Mark Hogan have been named to the Capital One Academic All-District first team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Both are now eligible for the Capital One Academic All-America team.
Davis and Hogan are both juniors on the football field but have already earned degrees from Georgia State. Davis graduated in real estate with a 3.86 grade point average is now pursing his MBA. Hogan completed requirements for a degree in finance with a 3.39 GPA and is now working toward a second degree in managerial science.
A native of Lithonia, Ga., who attended Chamblee High School, Davis suffered season-ending injuries in 2010 and 2011 but has come back to earn a starting berth at center this year.
Hogan, from Matthews, N.C., was Georgia State's first scholarship football player when he enrolled in 2009 and has been a three-year starter at linebacker. He is the leading tackler in GSU history, and he is a two-sport standout as a left-handed hitting outfielder for the Panther baseball team.
The Panthers conclude the 2012 season Saturday at Maine.
With the selection of Davis and Hogan, the Georgia State football program, in just its third year of existence, has had two first first-team Academic All-District honorees in each of the last two seasons. Seniors Kalan Jenkins and Michael Davis made the 2011 team.
