UCF football’s defensive end Luke Adams and punter Caleb Houston, who are both redshirt juniors, were each voted to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Team on Thursday, according to a press release.
With the honor, both players will now be on the CoSIDA Academic All-America ballot.
The last time the Knights had two All-District Team honorees was in 2009, when Alex Thompson and Rocky Ross earned the award, according to the release.
Houston is an accounting major, and his 3.39 grade-point average has previously earned him spots on the UCF’s Dean’s List, President’s Honor Roll and American Athletic Conference All-Academic Team, according to the release.
On the field, Houston is having a record-setting season. On 49 punts, he has averaged 44.4 yards. If he maintains the average for the remainder of the season, it will be good enough for the second-highest in school history
Adams is a sport and exercise science major and has maintained a 3.36 GPA. He and is a two-time member of the AAC All-Academic Team.
In eight games this season, Adams has recorded 23 tackles, a sack, 2.5 tackles for loss and a pass break-up.
