AUBURN, Ala. -
Auburn punter Steven Clark and defensive back Trent Fisher have been named to the 2013 District 4 Capital One Academic All-District ® Football Teams, selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America. These teams recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
Clark, who graduated in May with his bachelor's degree in exercise science, had a 3.70 grade-point average as an undergraduate. He is now enrolled in graduate studies in biomechanics. The senior from Kansas City, Mo., is a two-time semifinalist for the Ray Guy Award and ranks among the Auburn top five in all career punting categories. The All-SEC and All-America punter is averaging 42.5 yards per punt and has had only four kicks returned this season.
Fisher, from Brentwood, Tenn., holds a 3.73 grade-point average in communication. The junior safety has appeared in 21 career games, starting two, and has recorded 25 career tackles. His 60-yard interception return for a touchdown against Alabama A&M in 2012 was the seventh-longest such play in Auburn history.
District 4 is comprised of all colleges and universities in Alabama, Florida, Georgia, South Carolina and Puerto Rico. First-team Academic All-District ® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month. Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA's Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.
