Boggs Named Academic All-America First Team

More news about: Gettysburg

AUSTIN, Texas – Senior Cordell Boggs (Taneytown, Md./Francis Scott Key) was named to the Academic All-America Division III Football Team as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and announced on Tuesday, Nov. 29.

 

Boggs was named Academic All-America First Team, becoming just the third football player from Gettysburg College to earn top-team status and the first since Cliff Mason '04 in 2003. Boggs is the sixth member of the Bullets football program to earn Academic All-America and follows in the footsteps of former teammate Kodie McNamara '16, who was a second-team honoree last fall.

 

A three-time Academic All-District First Team selection, Boggs earned his first national award after another strong season on the offensive line. A team captain this fall, he started all 10 games at right tackle as Gettysburg finished second overall in the Centennial Conference with 195.4 rushing yards per game. The Bullets finished fourth in the conference in total offense at 422.4 yards per game. With Boggs paving the way, Gettysburg posted seven outings with 200 or more rushing yards and six with at least 400 yards of total offense. In a 52-21 win over Moravian College, Gettysburg logged a season-high 620 yards of offense and did not allow a sack.

 

A four-year starter, Boggs appeared in 37 career games, including starting each of the last 34. He helped the Bullets lead the CC in passing offense in 2013 and rushing offense in 2015. Gettysburg ranked among the top four teams in the league in total offense in each of his four seasons, including second in both 2013 and 2015.

 

Off the gridiron, Boggs is a Biochemistry-Molecular Biology major and was recently featured by the College for his summer research on enzyme kinetics. Earlier this fall, he was named a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy – one of the most prestigious academic-oriented awards in college football.
