Southern Miss redshirt freshman Austin Davis was one of 14 Conference USA football players to earn All-Academic Team honors which was announced Thursday by the league office in Irving, Texas.
The 2008 Conference USA Football All-Academic Team was led by a trio of graduate students and also consisted of three seniors, five juniors, two sophomores, and a redshirt freshman. A student-athlete must have a 3.2 cumulative grade point average or better and be a starter or key reserve on the football team to be eligible. Houston, Memphis, Rice, SMU and Tulsa landed two student-athletes apiece on the 14 member team, while Marshall, Southern Miss, Tulane and UTEP each had one.
Davis captured his first all-academic accolade as a business major with a 3.69 GPA.
The redshirt freshman is the first freshman QB to start the season since 1991 for the Golden Eagles and broke nine school single-game records and five single-season marks that include most passing yards in a game (461) and most rushing touchdowns in a contest (5) as well as total offense for a season (3,323).
