Indiana senior defensive tackle Adam Replogle earned a spot on the Capital One Academic All-America® Division I football first team as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) on Thursday. Replogle is just the eighth Hoosier (10th time) to collect the honor and the first since kicker Austin Starr in 2007.
A criminal justice and psychology double major, Replogle is a three-time Capital One Academic All-District V selection and a three-time Academic All-Big Ten honoree.
On the field, Replogle garnered second team All-Big Ten recognition following the regular season. He started an Indiana record 47 games and finished his career with 184 tackles, 15 sacks, which is ninth in school history, and 28.5 tackles for loss.
In 2012, Replogle led the team with five sacks (tied for seventh in the Big Ten), 13 tackles for loss (seventh) and two forced fumbles (tied for 10th) and finished third with 71 tackles. His 5.9 tackles per game topped all Big Ten defensive linemen, and he closed second among defensive tackles in sacks and TFLs.
Replogle is also a finalist for the Senior CLASS Award, was one of 10 finalists for the ARA Sportsmanship Award, was a nominee for the 2012 AFCA Good Works Team and was a semifinalist for the William V. Campbell Trophy.
