OGDEN, Utah - The Big Sky Conference announced the members of the Fall 2016 Big Sky All-Academic Team last Friday and 56 Thunderbirds earned a spot on the list. The total number includes 21 T-Birds from football, 17 from soccer, 11 from cross country, and seven from volleyball.

"Academic excellence is at the forefront of our focus. The student-athletes represented here are leading from the front as it relates to academic efforts," director of athletics Jason Butikofer said. "I could not be more proud of what these young men and women are accomplishing on a daily basis."

To be eligible, a student-athlete must have participated in at least half of the team’s competitions, achieved a 3.2 cumulative grade point average (on a 4.0 scale) at the conclusion of the most recently completed term, and completed at least one academic term at SUU.

The full release and list of athletes from the Big Sky is attached.
