CHARLESTON, W.Va. -- Dominick LeGrande, one of two Boston College graduates brought by Marshall to play safety, was named to Conference USA's All-Academic football team Thursday.
The Staten Island, N.Y., native carries a 3.50 grade-point average in adult and technical education. He and Okechukwu Okoroha earned degrees in communications at BC, finishing their work during their 2011-12 hiatus from football.
LeGrande led the Herd in tackles with 132, including 69 solo stops. He also intercepted two passes, broke up five and forced a fumble.
Fourteen players from 11 different schools were chosen.
