UT safety Mark Singer picked off a pass when the Rockets played Ohio State in September.

UT sophomore safety Mark Singer was named ESPN The Magazine second-team Academic All-District IV by the College Sports Information Directors of America Nov. 5.

Singer has a 3.70 GPA and is undecided upon his major. He has played in all nine games as a backup this season, making 13 tackles. His sole interception this season came against Ohio State Sept. 19.

He was one of five Rockets nominated for Academic All-America. The others were senior linebacker Beau Brudzinski (finance major, 3.521 GPA), sophomore long snapper Colin McHugh (pre-finance major, 3.969 GPA), sophomore Malcolm Riley (undecided, 3.469 GPA), and sophomore Mike VanDerMeulen (pre-business, 3.339 GPA).

To be nominated for Academic All-America, student-athletes must have at least sophomore eligibility standing, have at least a 3.30 grade-point average, be starters or significant contributors, and have played in at least half of their team’s games. A College Sports Information Directors of America committee will then select the Academic All-America teams from the players on the first-team academic all-district teams.
