Cherney receives CoSIDA Academic All-District honors

CoSIDA Release

Concordia football student-athlete Mitchell Cherney has been named to CoSIDA’s Capital One Academic All-District 6 team of the College Division. The College Division of District 6 encompasses the states of Kansas, Montana, Nebraska and South Dakota and includes a total of 26 football honorees.

Nearly 4,000 student-athletes across all sports nationally receive All-District honors for their all-around accomplishments in the classroom, in the community and in competition. Student-athletes (sophomores through seniors) who have achieved cumulative grade-point averages above 3.5 and have performed at a high level on the playing field receive greatest consideration for the All-District teams.

Cherney, a junior from Burnsville, Minn., has served as the backup left tackle for the majority of the 2012 season. He is part of an offensive unit that has improved from 16.7 points per game last season to 25.7 in 2012. The biology and chemistry major is also a standout in the classroom with one of the highest cumulative GPAs among members of the Bulldog football team.

As a Capital One Academic All-District 6 honoree, Cherney will now be placed on the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. Academic All-Americans will be announced at a later date.

*NOTE: Each district is separated into College Division, NCAA Division I, II and III teams.
