ATHENS-----University of Georgia senior quarterback Aaron Murray has been named SEC Scholar-Athlete of the Year, according to an announcement Wednesday by the league office. The 2013 SEC football individual awards were voted on by the league's 14 head coaches, who were not allowed to vote for their own players.

Murray was named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America first team, and he was also one of 16 players nationwide who earned one of the prestigious National Football Foundation (NFF) Scholar-Athlete Awards. The Tampa, Fla., native graduated with a degree in Psychology in 2011 after posting a GPA of 3.3 and then recorded a 4.0 in his first semester of his Psychology doctorate program.  

The three-time First Team Academic All-District selection was a member of the 2012 Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, and he was named one of 12 finalists for the Wuerffel Trophy, which honors the college football player who best combines exemplary community service with outstanding academic and athletic achievement.

Murray set four SEC career records in his final season as a Bulldog, including touchdown passes, total offense, passing yards and completions. In addition, he is also the SEC's leading player in TD responsibility (137). His 13,166 passing yards are No. 2 nationally among active FBS quarterbacks.
