ATLANTA (Nov. 11) – Georgia Tech punter Dan Dyke, who maintains a perfect 4.0 grade point average in Aerospace Engineering, has been named to the GTE Academic All-District III football team, announced Thursday by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Dyke, a sophomore from Winter Springs, Fla., leads the Atlantic Coast Conference and ranks fourth in the nation in net punting with a net of 40.9 yards per punt. His average of 44.8 yards per kick would rank second in the ACC and among the top ten nationally, but Techs high-powered offense does not give him enough attempts to qualify.
Academic All-District selections, who are now eligible for the GTE Academic All-America team, must have a cumulative GPA of 3.2 or higher and be a starter or key reserve. District III is made up of all Division I-A and I-AA schools in Georgia, Florida, North Carolina, South Carolina and Virginia.
