Greg McElroy Named ESPN Academic All-American of the Year

Nov. 23, 2010

TUSCALOOSA, Ala. - Alabama senior quarterback Greg McElroy was selected as the ESPN Academic All-American of the Year in the Football Bowl Subdivision by the College Sports Information Directors of America on Tuesday.

Sophomore offensive lineman Barrett Jones also joined McElroy as a first-team ESPN Academic All-American. It marks Jones' second straight year on the Academic All-American team after garnering second-team honors a season ago. Jones is also the third Crimson Tide player to twice be selected as an Academic All-American, joining Johnny Musso (1970-71) and Randy Hall (1973-74).

"It is a great honor," McElroy said. "One of my goals when I came to school here was to be an Academic All-American. It is something that I set my sights on early in my career at Alabama. I am just very proud to be able to represent the University of Alabama and very honored to be selected as the Academic All-American of the Year."

McElroy becomes just the second Alabama student-athlete to earn Academic All-American of the Year honors. Stephanie Kite, a women's gymnast, was also selected as the ESPN Academic All-American of the Year on the At-Large Team in 2004.
