GREENSBORO, N.C. (theACC.com) – Florida State’s Michael Fout has been recognized as the 2013 Atlantic Coast Conference Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Scholar-Athlete of the Year, announced today by Commissioner John Swofford. Fout highlights the 2013 All-ACC Academic Men’s Outdoor Track & Field Team.
A senior psychology major from La Porte, Ind., Fout placed fourth at the 2013 NCAA Championships in the 10,000 meters with a time of 29:42.33 to earn first-team All-America honors. Fout’s points were Florida State’s first in a distance event at the NCAA Championships since 2008. Fout was also a key contributor to the Seminoles’ ACC title in April, as his sixth-place finish in the 5,000 meters clinched first place.
The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year recognition is the second for Fout, who also received the honor in cross country following the 2011 season.
Fout, a Capital One Academic All-District Selection and a three-time CoSIDA Academic All-America nominee, makes his fourth appearance on the All-ACC Academic team for Men’s Outdoor Track and Field. He has qualified for the ACC Academic Honor Roll for the fifth time and is a four-time USTFCCCCA All-Academic qualified.
Duke leads the 2013 All-ACC Academic Men’s Outdoor Track and Field Team with 10 selections. Virginia had seven student-athletes honored and Florida State six. Each of the ACC’s 12 schools placed at one student-athlete on the squad.
The 2013 All-ACC Academic features a pair of Capital One Track and Field/Cross Country All-Americans in Florida State’s Stefan Brits and Georgia Tech’s Eric Powers, and one third-team selection in Virginia’s Mark Amirault. To be eligible for All-ACC Academic Team consideration, a student-athlete must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year awards were established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. Candidates for the awards must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.
