RICHARDSON, Texas – A trio of players highlighted the 2015 Lone Star Conference football academic awards, which were announced by league officials on Thursday.
Eastern New Mexico’s Jeremy Buurma, along with Angelo State’s Kyle Washington and Ryan Clapsaddle shared Academic Player of the Year recognition.
A total of 11 players were named to the LSC All-Academic Team, which recognizes both academic and athletic achievement.
The All-Academic Team is selected by the league’s sports information directors, who vote on the basis of both academic and athletic achievement. To be eligible for LSC academic honors, student-athletes must have played in at least 50 percent of team’s contests, reached sophomore athletic and academic standing (true freshmen and redshirt freshmen are not eligible), completed at least one full academic year at the nominating institution, and have a minimum 3.30 cumulative grade point average based on the 4.0 system for his/her entire collegiate career.
With Buurma, Washington, and Clapsaddle on the All-Academic Team was Tarleton State’s Cody Burtscher, Zed Woerner, and Isaac Arellano; West Texas A&M’s Dillon Vaughan, Garrett Neuman, and Word Hudson; and Texas A&M-Commerce’s Shane Thompson and Daniel Roland.
Buurma is a three-time all-academic honoree, while Washington and Burtscher are repeat selections.
