Kevin C. Cox

Georgia Bulldogs quarterback Aaron Murray and long snapper Ty Frix were both named as Academic All-Americans. It's the first time since 1998 that the Bulldogs have two Academic-All Americans on the same team.

Two members of the Georgia Bulldogs football team, quarterback Aaron Murray and long snapper Ty Frix, were named to the Capital One Academic All-America Division I team.

While both players were named to the second team, it's the first time since 1998, when Matt Stinchcomb and Kirby Smart were both selected, that two players from the Bulldogs were named as Academic All-Americans.

To be eligible for the honor, student-athletes must at least be sophomore, varsity starters maintaining a cumulative 3.30 GPA and nominated by the school's sports information director.

Murray, who graduated in May with a GPA of 3.30, is a psychology major who is now pursuing a doctor of psychology degree.

Frix graduated Magna Cum Laude in biological engineering in May and is now pursuing his MBA. He was also accepted into medical school for the Fall 2013 term. A four-year starter for the Bulldogs, Frix also earned the Peach of an Athlete Award for the state of Georgia, an award that recognizes those who excel in academics, athletics and community service. Frix was also awarded the 2012 Dick Copas Leadership Award and football's overall Scholar-Athlete Award.
