University of Notre Dame sophomore wide receiver Corey Robinson has earned the distinction of being named to the 2014 Capital One Academic All-America® Division I Football Team, as chosen by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA).
Robinson (San Antonio, Texas/San Antonio Christian) is the first sophomore at an NCAA Division I institution to earn first-team Academic All-America honors since 2008. He also is just the fourth sophomore to attain first-team status since 2002, joining Pittsburgh defensive lineman Vince Crochunis (2002), Florida quarterback Tim Tebow (2007) and South Dakota State running back Kyle Minett (2008).
Robinson is the second Irish sophomore football player to earn first-team Academic All-America status and the first since Joe Heap in 1952. Heap remains the only player in program history, and one of three in University history, to be a three-time first-team Academic All-America selection.
Robinson becomes the third Notre Dame student-athlete to earn Academic All-America honors this fall. Last month, Irish men's soccer players Patrick Hodan and Luke Mishu garnered first-team and third-team Academic All-America recognition, respectively.
