GREENWOOD, Ind. – For the second time in his career, University of Tennessee at Chattanooga senior heavyweight Jared Johnson has earned a spot on the Collegiate Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District At-Large Team.

The men's At-Large team consists of nominees from NCAA Division I programs in wrestling, fencing, golf, gymnastics, hockey, lacrosse, rifle, skiing, swimming, tennis, volleyball and water polo.

To be nominated, a student-athlete must be a starter or important reserve with at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average.  Nominated athletes must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's events.

Johnson was an honors graduate in the spring of 2016 with a degree in chemical engineering and a 3.76 GPA.  He also earned the Southern Conference's William Moore Graduate Scholarship presented by McMillan Pazdan Smith and is currently working on an M.B.A. at UTC.

He is a three-time NCAA qualifier and a three-time Academic All-NWCA.  He also earned CoSIDA Academic All-District honors following his junior season.

First-team Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
