From Texas Tech Athletics:

LUBBOCK, TEXAS – Senior defensive back Cody Davis has been named to the 2012 Capital One Academic-America First Team and becomes the first Texas Tech football player to earn this honor since former quarterback Kliff Kingsbury in 2002.

Davis just recently returned from the National Football Foundation Awards Dinner in New York City where he was one of 15 student-athletes competing for the William B. Campbell Trophy.  He is one three Big 12 student-athletes represented on the first team and the only defensive player.

Davis is currently pursuing a master's degree in Management Information Systems after earning his bachelor degree, with honors, in M.I.S. and posting an impressive 3.7 grade point average. He currently maintains a perfect 4.0 GPA in the graduate school and will complete his postgraduate degree in 2013.

Just the ninth Academic All-America selection in Red Raider football history, Davis has compiled over 350 career tackles during his four-year career and logged more solo tackles than any Tech player over the last decade. 

Davis will play the final game of his Texas Tech career on Dec. 28, when the Red Raiders face the Minnesota Golden Gophers in the 2012 Meineke Car Care Bowl of Texas at Reliant Stadium in Houston.  Tickets for the game are on sale through the athletics ticket office or online at texastech.com.Copyright 2012 KCBD.
