The Atlantic Coast Conference on Friday announced the 2013 All-ACC Academic Men's Golf team and it includes Maryland senior Stephen Bosdosh.

It is the second time Bosdosh, a business major, has been selected to the All-ACC Academic team.

Duke's Brinson Paolini, a senior psychology major, was named the Scholar-Athlete and is a four-time All-ACC Academic member, a two-time All-ACC team honoree and the 2013 recipient of the Byron Nelson Award as the nation's top senior collegiate player.

In addition to Paolini, three other golfers - Wake Forest's Evan Beck, Clemson's Crawford Reeves and Duke's Julian Suri - are four-time academic honorees. Earning all-academic recognition for a third time are Georgia Tech's Bo Andrews, Virginia Tech's Bryce Chalkley, Wake Forest's Charles Harrison. In all, a total of 14 golfers are repeat honorees from the 2012 All-ACC Academic team.

Ten of the 11 ACC schools that compete in men's golf are represented on this year's academic Team. Clemson, Duke and Georgia Tech led the way with four honorees. Virginia Tech and Wake Forest claimed three players each while Florida State and North Carolina both placed two players. Boston College, Maryland and Virginia landed one player each to complete the team.

The ACC Scholar-Athlete of the Year award was established in September 2007 to be awarded annually to the top junior or senior student-athlete in their respective sports. Candidates for the award must have maintained a 3.0 grade point average for their career as well as a 3.0 for each of the last two semesters.

To be eligible for consideration for the All-ACC Academic team, a student-athlete, regardless of classification, must have earned a 3.00 grade point average for the previous semester and maintained a 3.00 cumulative average during his academic career.
