 Dalton State men's golfer Brock Hoover has been named the Barnes & Noble College Male Scholar-Athlete of the Year by the Southern States Athletic Conference. He is also the Men's Golf Scholar-Athlete of the Year.
 
It was a solid start to the season for Hoover with 3 top-15 finishes in four events. He got stronger as the season went on finishing with 1 victory and two other top-5 finishes and a 71.4 scoring average that ranked him as the #16 individual nationally.
 
The senior from Woodstock finished his career with a GPA just shy of 4.0 in the classroom.
