Then There Were 10
Sunday, January 25, 2009
Brown junior J.J. Eno, of Kahului, Hawaii, has been named a CoSIDA/ESPN The Magazine Second Team Academic All-American. A neuroscience concentrator, Eno will graduate into Brown's Warren Alpert Medical School as a member of the University's Program in Liberal Medical Education.
A former walk-on, Eno hit .300 in 80 at-bats this season, scoring 16 runs and driving in 10. In 34 Ivy League at-bats, Eno hit .324, seeing time in 14 games and starting 10 as the Bears' designated hitter. He was named a First Team Academic All-District on May 10, advancing to the national round of voting.
His Brown Bears won the Ivy League championship and will now face the Texas Longhorns in Round Rock, Texas, in Friday's first round of the NCAA Championship.
Eno becomes Brown's first Academic All-American since 1987, when Scott Simpson and John Plansky were named first- and second-team Academic All-Americans, respectively.
The College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) selects Academic All-America teams in 12 programs -- football, women's volleyball, men's soccer, women's soccer, men's basketball, women's basketball, baseball, softball, men's track & field/cross country, women's track & field/cross country, men's at-large and women's at-large. A first team, second team and third team are selected in both the University (Division I and I-AA) and College (Division II, III and NAIA) Divisions. The awards are nominated and voted on by college sports information directors. Only student-athletes with at least sophomore standing and a 3.20 GPA are eligible for consideration.
