Seth Heck‘s college baseball career may be completed but his accomplishments in the classroom are still being lauded.

The Mississippi State senior shortstop and two-time SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year was named second team Academic All-American by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

Heck is the 18th Diamond Dogs to receive the honor and first since former MSU and Tupelo standout Chris Stratton in 2012. Heck maintained a 4.0 grade point average during his two years in Starkville and earned a degree in business administration last month.

As a senior, the Edmonds, Wash., native started 47 of the 50 games in which he appeared batting .287 with four doubles, 12 RBIs and six stolen bases.

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.
