Not only has Taveze Calhoun been starring in Mississippi State’s secondary this season, he has also performing superbly in the classroom as well.

The sophomore cornerback from Morton was named to the Capital One All-District 6 First Team with a 3.64 cumulative grade point average majoring in kinesiology.

Calhoun is the Bulldogs first All-District selection since Derek Sherrod in 2010. MSU has not had a winner for the award since Robert Wallis a decade ago.

To qualify for Academic All-District, a player must be a starter or vital reserve with at least a 3.30 GPA at his current school. No player is eligible until he has completed an entire year in college and is considered a sophomore on the field.

The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder is now eligible to be a Capital One Academic All-American.

Calhoun has started eight of MSU’s nine games this season making 27 tackles, one for loss, three pass breakups as well as forcing and recovering a fumble.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
