ATLANTA – Georgia State senior Alex Herrmann has been named to the 2017-18 Google Cloud Academic All-District® Men’s At-Large Team, selected by CoSIDA, as announced by the organization. The award recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances on the playing field and in the classroom.
Herrmann becomes the fifth Georgia State golfer to be recognized and first since 2016 when JJ Grey was honored. Herrmann is one of two golfers on the 10-member squad from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, Southern Carolina and Puerto Rico which make up District 4. All 10 members will now be on the ballot for Academic All-American recognition. Sports included golf, ice hockey, swimming, tennis, wrestling, and lacrosse.
The senior will now be on the ballot for CoSIDA Academic All-America Team, where first-, second- and third team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
Herrmann is a two-time All-Sun Belt First Team member who earned President’s List academic honors all eight semesters he was a student-athlete at Georgia State.
This year, despite missing the final four tournaments of the season due to injury, Herrmann still led the Panthers with a 73.17 scoring average and a pair of top 25 results in just six events. In his last collegiate event, he finished tied for fourth at the Auburn Tiger Invitational to lead the Panthers to a second-place finish.
“Alex had a tremendous career at Georgia State and we are proud to see him earn this honor,” head coach Chad Wilson said. When you look up the definition of student-athlete in the dictionary, you will find a photo of Alex. As good a golfer he was on the course, he was an even better student in the classroom.”
Georgia State’s season concluded in the Sun Belt Conference Championship last month. The Panthers are expected to open the 2018-19 season in early September.
