"It is amazing to see our student-athletes representing their teams, the athletic department, and the institution on an academic level. We sincerely appreciate their dedication and sacrifice to what is most important. Student-athletes are asked to do so much; maintain their studies, win in their sport, train year-round, be active in the community, manage a social life, remain close to their faith and families, for them to excel academically is a remarkable accomplishment.
Congratulations to all sixteen recipients of the USCAA National All-Academic award!"
