The Tennessee football team landed 19 student-athletes among 37 UT recipients on the 2009 Southeastern Conference Fall Academic Honor Roll, as released Friday by SEC Commissioner Mike Slive.
Five Vols, all from within the state of Tennessee and all regular contributors on the football field during their playing days, were selected to the SEC's honor roll for the fourth time. They were tight end Jeff Cottam of Germantown, deep snapper Morgan Cox of Collierville, wide receiver Austin Rogers of Nashville, center Cody Sullins of Cottontown and offensive guard Cory Sullins of Cottontown. Cody Sullins was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-District IV second team during the fall.
Three-time honorees on this year's list are placekicker Daniel Lincoln of Ocala, Fla., offensive guard Jacques McClendon of Cleveland, linebacker Nick Reveiz of Farragut and defensive back Tyler Wolf of Cookeville.
Three more UT recipients of this year's honor roll are former members of the SEC Freshman Academic Honor Roll. They are fullback Ben Bartholomew of Nashville, punter Chad Cunningham of Dawsonville, Ga., and linebacker Herman Lathers of Baton Rouge, La.
The 2009 SEC Fall Academic Honor Roll recognizes team members from the sports of football, soccer and volleyball and is based on grades from the 2009 spring, summer and fall terms. Each student-athlete must have a grade-point average of 3.00 or above for either the preceding academic year (two semesters or three quarters) or have a cumulative grade point average of 3.00 or above at the nominating institution. If a student-athlete attends summer school, his/her grade point average during the summer academic term must be included in the calculation used to determine eligibility for the Academic Honor Roll. Student-athletes eligible for the Honor Roll include those receiving an athletics scholarship, recipients of an athletics award (i.e., letter winner), and nonscholarship student-athletes who have been on a varsity team for two seasons. Prior to being nominated, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a baccalaureate degree at the nominating institution. The student-athlete must have been a member of a varsity team for the sport's entire NCAA Championship segment.
