Two Syracuse University football players left tackle Rob Trudo and punter Riley Dixon were named to the All-ACC Academic Team this week.
The Orange players were two of 67 selections. To be eligible, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade-point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
Dixon, a junior accounting major, was named to the Capital One Academic All-District team and has been on the all-conference academic team for two straight years.
Trudo, a junior economics major, was named to the all-conference academic team for the third year in a row.
