In the classroom, Dillman has earned a 3.49 grade point average as a Business Administration major at Union. This marks the second straight season that Dillman has been named to the Academic All-District Team, as he eventually moved onto to taking National Academic All-American honors in 2013.

He will now move onto the National Ballot, which will be voted on by a select panel of CoSIDA members by May 13.
The Bulldogs finished their 2014 regular season with a 34-18 overall record, 17-10 in the Appalachian Athletic Conference. Union will open play at the 2014 AAC Tournament on Monday afternoon in Kingsport, Tenn., and will be the number-three seed in the Tournament.
