BATON ROUGE, La. – The LSU Cox Communications Academic Center for Student-Athletes (CCACSA) recognizes six student-athletes for their scholastic and community achievements each month. Student-athletes are chosen based on their commitment to academic success and for their devotion to volunteerism and service to the community.

Here are the May 2021 CCACSA’s staff Student-Athletes of the Month:

Drew Doyle, Fr., Men’s Golf, Louisville, Kentucky (Major: Finance)

Nominator – Assistant Director Taylor Dennehy: “Drew has done a remarkable job navigating his freshman year in the classroom and on the course. While balancing a difficult business course load and being on the road for a majority of the Spring, he has done a great job communicating with his professors and staying on top of all his course work. He has challenged himself to have the best freshman year that he could, and has set himself up to have a great academic career.”

Kelli Greene-Agnew, Jr., Beach Volleyball, Glendale, Arizona (Major: Sport Administration)

Nominator – Graduate Assistant Dan Bowen: “Kelli is having an excellent semester in the classroom. Having your best academic performance at the end of your junior year takes hard work, determination and focus, three words that also describe the effort she puts in on the court. Kelli has been working hard in school every year she’s been here. It is great to see her hard work pay off in the form of awesome grades.”

Kendall Griffin, Sr., Women’s Golf, Sebring, Florida (Major: Marketing)

Nominator – Assistant Director Taylor Dennehy: “Kendall always impresses me with how well she navigates being in-season and balancing her school work. She holds herself accountable while on the road. She gets her work done and does a great job communicating with professors. Kendall is never afraid to ask for help and strives to perform well in her studies.”

Max Johnson, Fr., Football, Athens, Georgia (Major: Undeclared)

Nominator – Learning Specialist Molly Ann Walke: “Max has grown over the last year when it comes to planning, time management, and organization. He has done such a great job of staying on top of his assignments, which landed him a spot on the Fall 2020 SEC Honor Roll. Max is incredibly respectful, hard-working and driven to succeed. His positive attitude makes him a joy to work with.”

Blake Money, Fr., Baseball, Spring Hill, Tennessee (Major: Sport Administration)

Nominator – Assistant Director Taylor Dennehy: “Blake always brings great energy into any class, study hall or tutoring session that he is in. He works hard in all his classes, which showed as he earned Dean’s List honors in Fall 2020. Blake always sets high goals for himself and sets a great example for other student-athletes.”

Max Peterson, Fr., Football, Weston, Massachusetts (Major: Information Decision Science Systems)

Nominator – Director of Academic Affairs Jason Shaw: “Max has done a great job of balancing the hectic schedule and demands of being a Business major and a student-athlete.
