Meirose named to Capital One Academic All-District® Football Team

CoSIDA release

SEWARD, Neb. – All-conference kicker Adam Meirose has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District® 3 Football Team of the College Division, as announced by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) on Thursday.

CoSIDA: “The Capital One Academic All-District® Football Teams have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. Capital One has been the entitlement rights holder to CoSIDA’s Academic All-America teams programs since 2011.”

Meirose, a Lincoln native and product of Lincoln North Star High School, took over as Concordia’s kicker in 2013. He made 9 of 13 field goal attempts and went 31-for-33 on extra point attempts to break the program record for made PATs in a season. He was then named a second team all-GPAC choice.

In 2014, Meirose has broken his own record for point after touchdowns (33-for-35) while going 3-for-5 with a long of 36 on field goal tries. In his career, Meirose is 64-for-68 on PATs and 12-for-18 on field goal attempts.

Meirose is majoring in exercise science as a pre-physical therapy student. The junior is also on track to earn Daktronics-NAIA Scholar-Athlete recognition. He is the only kicker on the district 3 college division academic team.

District 3 of the College Division covers institutions in the states of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, Montana, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin.

Academic All-District® honorees advance to the Capital One Academic All-America® Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be selected and then released on Nov. 19.
