USF's Boggs earns top Big East academic honor
Boggs, who scored both goals in USF's NCAA Tournament win against Harvard, is the first USF athlete to earn the prestigious honor, which carries with it a $4,000 scholarship toward postgraduate studies.
"Amazing accomplishment," said Justin Miller, USF assistant athletic director for student-athlete development and academics, in a statement. "Zak really embodies what it means to be a USF student-athlete. He has demonstrated the ability to succeed at an extremely high level in everything he takes on. Zak is very well-deserving of this recognition, as it speaks to his commitment to excellence and his outstanding work ethic."
Boggs, a junior forward who played previously at West Virginia and Central Florida before joining the Bulls in 2007, was the second-leading scorer on a USF team that won the Big East championship and advanced to the NCAA's Elite 8.
