AUSTIN, Texas – Kent State's TJ Lawson has been named to the 2020 CoSIDA Academic All-America® Men's Track & Field/Cross Country Second Team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced on Thursday.

The CoSIDA Academic All-America® teams recognize the nation's top student-athletes for their combined performances on the field and in the classroom.

A third team honoree in 2019, Lawson is Kent State's first men's track and field student-athlete to earn multiple Academic All-America® honors. Three Golden Flashes have accomplished this on the women's side (Jennifer Buckley, Dior Delophont, Jeanna Fascione).
