2021 CoSIDA Academic All-District Football Teams

SEWARD, Neb. – For the second year in a row, Jonah Weyand has found his way onto the 2021 Academic All-District® Football Team, as selected by College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) and announced on Thursday (Nov. 18). Weyand appeared on the All-District 3 team, which covers the states of Iowa, Kansas, Minnesota, Missouri, North Dakota, Nebraska, South Dakota and Wisconsin. The Concordia University Football program has landed at least one student-athlete on the all-district teams in each of the past nine years.

The 2021 Academic All-District® Football Teams, selected by CoSIDA, recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. The CoSIDA Academic All-America® program separately recognizes football honorees in four divisions — NAIA, NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III.

A First Team All-GPAC running back in 2020, Weyand has led the Bulldogs in rushing in back-to-back years. The Crete High School product rushed for 595 yards and three touchdowns on 143 carries this past season. Weyand rushed for more than 100 yards in each of the final two games of the 2021 season. He ran 625 yards and nine touchdowns the previous year. In his career, Weyand has totaled 1,339 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns. A two-time NAIA Scholar-Athlete, Weyand garnered Academic All-America honors from CoSIDA last season. He majors in Psychology and Strategic Communication.

First-team Academic All-District® honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® ballot. First-, second- and third-team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced in mid-December.
