USF men’s soccer forward Zak Boggs was named 2008-2009 Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year, becoming the first South Florida athlete to win the award.

The junior will receive $4,000 towards postgraduate or professional studies because of his academic and on-field performances.

Boggs was the second leading scorer this season (5) and helped lead the Bulls to their first Big East Championship in soccer.

If you remember, we did a podcast interview with Boggs during the season, and I’m sure you guys would be interested in hearing it. Here it is!

USF also had eight football players named to the Big East All-Academic team today. Wide receiver Marcus Edwards frontlined the names, becoming the first player in school history to achieve the mark four years in a row.

Safety Nate Allen and punter Delbert Alvarado were among some of the names, as well.

A reminder, I’ll be courtside at the Sun Dome tonight live blogging my life away! See you then!
