Chattanooga’s Adam Miller was been named to the 15th Annual Championship Subdivision Athletic Directors Association (FCS ADA) Academic All-Star Team this week.
Miller, a senior from Cohutta, Ga., has a 3.78 g.p.a as a Construction Management major, and he’s now a two-time member of the FCS ADA Academic All-Star Team, having also earned the honor last season.
"The FCS ADA is pleased to honor the accomplishments of our football student-athletes each year with our Academic All-Star Team," said FCS ADA President Ron Strollo, director of athletics at Youngstown State University. "The accolades of these young men both in the classroom and on the field epitomize the definition of student-athlete and our Association looks forward to recognizing their accomplishments annually."
Players from all institutions are eligible for the honor, and each of the nominees are required to have a minimum grade point average of 3.20 in undergraduate study and be a starter or key player with legitimate athletic credentials. Individuals must have also reached their second year of athletics and academic standing at the nominated institution, and have completed a minimum of one full academic year at the nominated institution.
Miller was also a second-team All-Southern Conference selection by the league’s media following the 2012 season. He started 40 games for the Mocs at right tackle, including the last 29 of his career.
Chattanooga has had four members on the FCS ADA Academic All-Star Team since it began in 1998, and Miller is one of two back-to-back recipients. The past Mocs on the team include Brian Hampton (1998), Steven Smigelsky (2009) and Joel Bradford (2010-11).
