SANTEE, Calif. – Derek Dickerson is a competitor on the court.
But the senior guard from Bellingham, Washington gets it done off the court as well.
Dickerson was one of five players selected in the region to the 2013-14 Capital One Academic All-District Men's Basketball Team.
The award is selected by the College Sports Information Director's of America for the nation's top student-athletes on and off the court.
Dickerson, a communications major, holds a 4.0 GPA. He also is averaging 13.4 points in 31 minutes per game and has started in all of the SDC games but one.
To be eligible for the Academic All-District Team, one must contain a 3.30 GPA and must reach sophomore standing at the institution and be nominated by the Sports Information Director.
Biola's Andre Murillo was also awarded in the district.
First-team Academic All District honorees advance to the next stage, the Capital One Academic All-America Team ballot. Dickerson now has the opportunity to be named first, second, or third-team All America later this month.
