Clemson, S.C. – George Marks, a sophomore goalkeeper for the second-ranked Clemson men’s soccer team, was tabbed as a first-team Academic All-District honoree by CoSIDA earlier today. Marks was one of 13 athletes named to the District 4 list, which is comprised of student-athletes from Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Puerto Rico. Marks is one of six representatives from the ACC to be named to the All-District list.
Marks is a Psychology major from Raleigh, N.C., and currently holds a 4.00 cumulative GPA. Marks has started 15 of the 16 matches for his squad this season and has contributed to all eight of the Tigers’ shutout performances. Off the field, Marks serves as Vice President of Clemson’s SAAC and has been a member of the University’s President’s List each of his first two semesters.
This is the program’s second-consecutive season with a member on the All-District team. Patrick Bunk-Andersen earned the same honor last season.
