University of Toledo senior linebacker Dan Molls has been named Capital One first-team Academic All-America by the College Sports Information Directors of America. Molls, who leads the nation with 166 tackles, has a 3.61 grade-point average in exercise science. He is Toledo’s first Academic All-American since Lance Moore in 2004.

“I could not be more proud of Danny Molls,” Toledo coach Matt Campbell said in a statement. “He is everything you want in a college football player. He has a total commitment to academics and athletics. He is a leader on our football team, both on and off the field, and is great role model for our younger players. He is very deserving to be called an Academic All-American.”

“It’s a great honor to be named Academic All-America,” Molls said. “To be included with some of the best football players in the country is very humbling.”

Molls was a first-team All-MAC pick this season, helping the Rockets to a 9-3 record and a berth in the Famous Idaho Potato Bowl.
