In order to be eligible for the honor, student-athletes must maintain a minimum GPA of 3.2 while also being recognized as a significant contributor to their team.

Academic achievement has long been a point of emphasis in GU’s athletic department, and its nice to see several of our student-athletes being recognized for their prowess on and off the court. Congrats, gentlemen!
