EDWARDSVILLE, Ill. – SIUE senior golfer Danny Gorman has been recognized for his achievement in the classroom and on the course. He was named to the Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar Team as chosen by the Golf Coaches Association of America (GCAA).
Gorman is one of just 260 Division I golfers chosen and is just the third Cougar in the Division I era to earn the award. He joins Taylor Cox and Taylor White, who each earned the honor following the 2013-14 season, as honorees.
"This is a nice honor for Danny, and something he should be proud of," SIUE Head Coach Derrick Brown said. "Earning the All-America Scholar award is one of our goals. To be just the third Cougar in Division I to receive the award is special."
On the course, the native of Rockford, Illinois, enjoyed a career-year as a junior in 2016-17. He appeared in all 11 of SIUE's tournaments and finished with a stroke average of 75.42, which was the best of his career. He earned his first top-five finishing, taking home fourth place at Missouri State's Twin Oaks Intercollegiate. In the classroom, Gorman earned a 3.286 grade point average while majoring in Business.
To be eligible for Srixon/Cleveland Golf All-America Scholar status, an individual must be a junior or senior academically, compete in at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50-percent of his team's competitive rounds and have a stroke-average under 76.0 in Division I.
