ORLANDO, Fla. -- Greg Dulcich, Caleb Johnson and Quentin Lake of UCLA were selected by CoSIDA to the 2020-21 Academic All-District® 8 Football Team, it was announced Thursday.
Academic All-District® Teams honor the region's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom. District 8 is comprised of Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawai'i, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Canada.
Dulcich, who has recorded a 3.48 GPA in Political Science, ranked second among the nation's tight ends in 2020 with a 19.9 yards per catch average. He was voted a second-team All-Pac-12 Conference selection by the league coaches. Dulcich hauled in a season-best eight passes for 167 yards in last season's game against USC. He has been named to the Athletic Director's Honor Roll at UCLA in six quarters.
Johnson started all seven games last season at inside linebacker and topped the Bruins with 44 tackles and 5.5 sacks. His sacks per game average of 0.79 ranked third in the Pac-12. Johnson, who has earned a 3.39 GPA in the African American Studies major at UCLA, was credited with a season-high 10 tackles in games last season against both Arizona State and Stanford. He was a second-team All-Pac-12 pick by the Associated Press.
