Three members of the Luther College football team have been named to the American Rivers Conference (A-R-C) 2019 Fall Sports All-Academic Team.
To qualify for all-academic team recognition, a student-athlete must be in their sophomore, junior or senior year of eligibility, have maintained a cumulative grade point average of 3.50 or greater on a 4.0 scale, have attended the school for at least a year, and be a member of the varsity team. All-academic teams are sponsored three times a year, fall, winter and spring.
The fall sports all-academic team is comprised of student-athletes from the sports of men’s and women’s soccer, men’s and women’s cross country, football, volleyball, women’s tennis, and women’s golf.
Earning all-academic team recognition were juniors Ben Nelson (Mahtomedi, Minn.) and Jonah Zaimes (Iowa Falls, Iowa/Iowa Falls-Alden) and sophomore Canon Reece (Littleton, Colo./Steamboat Springs). This is the second time both Nelson and Zaimes have been so honored.
