The Capital One Academic All-District Teams are made up of student-athletes from eight regions across the country. UTC is in District 3 that includes all Division I programs (FBS & FCS) in Tennessee, North Carolina and Virginia.
Nominees must be in their second year at an institution and have at least a 3.3 cumulative grade-point-average. CoSIDA members then vote on the all-district teams, based on academic and athletic performance.
Miller is the first Moc to be a two-time honoree after earning a spot on the Capital One Academic All-District team last season. A native of Cohutta, Ga., Miller has a 3.78 g.p.a. as a Construction Management major. He has started a team-high 41 games for the Mocs at right tackle, including 27-straight. He is a two-time Academic All-Southern Conference honoree and a member of the 2011 FCS ADA Academic All-Star Team.
Tull is one of four sophomores on the District 3 team. A native of Knoxville, Tenn., he currently leads the SoCon and is No. 4 in the nation with 10.0 sacks as a defensive end. He also leads the league with 13.5 tackles-for-loss. Tull carries a 3.43 g.p.a. in Health and Human Performance.
Both Miller and Tull are now eligible to become the Mocs first Academic All-Americans in football. First-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected later this month.
