Vanderbilt senior Theo Humphrey was named the SEC Scholar Athlete of the Year by the league's coaches on Friday by the league office for his work in the classroom and on the course this season.
Humphrey becomes the second Commodore to win the award since it was established in 2004, joining Ryan Haselden, who captured the award in 2011.
Humphrey, a three-time SEC Academic Honor Roll honoree and a 2017 Golf Coaches Association of America All-American Scholar, is an Economics major with a 3.531 cumulative GPA who is also having one of the Commodores' best seasons in history. His stroke average of 69.84 entering the SEC Championship leads the fourth-ranked Vanderbilt team this year and is the second-lowest in program history behind a 69.49 average from first-team All-American and SEC Player of the Year Hunter Stewart in 2014-15.
"I am so proud of Theo winning this award," said Vanderbilt head coach Scott Limbaugh. "It really means a lot to him especially since he was chosen by all of the head coaches in our league. He is a true student-athlete and sets a great example for our team in the classroom and on the course. He takes great pride in his schoolwork and it gives me great joy to see him rewarded for that, especially when there were so many other worthy student-athletes from other universities."
