Dulcich (85), Lake (37) and Landherr IV (51) earn academic accolades.

Three Bruins were named to the 2021-22 CoSIDA Academic All-District 8 Football Team (College Sports Information Directors of America) which was announced on Thursday. Tight end Greg Dulcich, safety Quentin Lake and long snapper Jack Landherr IV were each honored as first-team selections and will advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. First-, second- and third-team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in mid-December. District 8 is comprised of schools located in Alaska, Arizona, California, Hawai'i, Oregon, Utah, Washington and Canada.
Dulcich, who has earned a 3.52 GPA in the Political Science major at UCLA, is also a 2021 semifinalist for the John Mackey Award as the nation's top collegiate tight end. He was named to the Academic All-District Team last year and is second on the squad with 34 receptions this season. Dulcich's 56.4 yards per game average tops the team and is sixth-best among Pac-12 receivers this season. Earlier this year, he recorded his third and fourth career 100-yard receiving games against Arizona State (136 yards) and LSU (117). Dulcich grabbed a career-best nine passes in that performance against the Sun Devils.
Lake, who registered a 3.4 undergraduate GPA in the Sociology major and has achieved a 3.86 average as a graduate Education student, has made 29 career starts at safety. He is the team leader this season in passes broken up (5) and rates fourth on the squad in tackles with 41 stops. Lake, who has appeared on the pre-season Lott IMPACT Trophy watch list the past two seasons, is making his second straight appearance on the Academic All-District Team and recorded a career-best 10 tackles last season against USC.
Landherr IV has handled all of the snapping responsibilities for the Bruin special teams units on field goals and extra points for the past three seasons. He has posted a 3.72 cumulative GPA in the Political Science major and has appeared on the UCLA Athletic Director's Honor Roll in 2019, 2020 and 2021.
