Georgia Tech Yellow Jackets Football: 3 Jackets Named Academic All-ACC

What's most impressive may not be the 'what', so much as the 'how'.

Georgia Tech Athletics

Monday brought news calling for celebration on the Flats, as three Georgia Tech football players were named to the Academic All-ACC team for 2013. Ray Beno, Business Administration/Economics ’13, Trey Braun, Mechanical Engineering ’15, and Harrison Butker, Industrial Engineering ’17, all were named to the squad that requires a 3.00 Cumulative GPA and a 3.00 Semester GPA.

The ACC has named an Academic All-ACC football team every year since 1954. Beno, Braun, and Butker extend the list to 23 Academic All-ACC members since Paul Johnson took over at Georgia Tech. Other notable members of the team during that time include Roddy Jones (’08-’10), Logan Walls (’09-’11), and Will Jackson (’10-’12). Beno was selected for his second straight season.

Impressed? Anyone else notice the selection of majors included within this list? Something you think we ought to flaunt to others?
