STARKVILLE, Miss. – Coming off a fall semester during which the Mississippi State football team posted its third-highest grade point average ever, 17 Bulldog student-athletes were recognized today as members of the Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll.
A pair of four-time honorees headline the list, with Cam Lawrence and Baker Swedenburg earning the distinction each year since 2009. Sam Williams was named to the Honor Roll for the third time, while Dillon Day, Nick Griffin, Brandon Hill and Eric Lawson became two-time honorees.
Any student-athlete who participates in a Southeastern Conference championship sport or a student-athlete who participates in a sport listed on his/her institution’s NCAA Sports Sponsorship Form is eligible for nomination to the Academic Honor Roll.

(4) Prior to being nominated, a student-athlete must have successfully completed 24 semester or 36 quarter hours of non-remedial academic credit toward a baccalaureate degree at the nominating institution.
