Cajun Closer Dylan Moore Earns Academic All-American Honors
Louisiana Ragin' Cajun closer Dylan Moore is just as impressive in the classroom as he is on the mound.
The sophomore who sports a 4.0 GPA while double-majoring in Political Science and Spanish (with plans to attend law school), along with a heck of a pitching arm, was named first-team Academic All-America by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Moore is the only first-team Academic All-American on this year's prestigious list with a 4.0.
“It’s quite an honor for any player to be named a first team Academic All-American,” Louisiana head coach Tony Robichaux said in a University press release. “I’m glad for Dylan who has always worked hard to make sure that his athletic talents never undermined his academic mission. That is something that is very important to us as a program. I also think that awards like this are important because it doesn’t just focus on athletic ability, but also what you do in the classroom. They are called student-athletes for a reason. I can’t be more proud for Dylan to receive this honor.”
With 26 saves in two seasons, Moore already is the all-time saves leader in program history.
