Two student-athletes selected as academic all-stars

NDSU strong safety Robbie Grimsley and quarterback Easton Stick were named to the 2017 Football Championship Subdivision Athletic Directors Association Academic All-Star Team on Jan. 5. Forty-nine winners were selected from 115 nominees.

Football players from all FCS institutions are eligible for the award. Each of the nominees were required to have a minimum grade-point average of 3.20 in undergraduate study and have been a starter or key player with legitimate athletics credentials. He must have reached his second year of athletics and academic standing at the nominated institution and have completed a minimum of one full academic year at the nominated institution. He must also have participated in 50 percent of the games played at his designated position.

Grimsley, a junior from Hutchinson, Minnesota, has a 3.56 GPA in criminal justice.  He is a two-time CoSIDA Academic All-District selection and was named to the Missouri Valley Football Conference All-Academic first team this season.

Stick, a junior from Omaha, Nebraska, has a 3.91 GPA in sport management and was named to the MVFC All-Academic first team for the second straight year.

In addition, Stick is among nine finalists for the 17th annual FCS ADA $5,000 Postgraduate Scholarships. Two student-athletes will receive postgraduate scholarships during the association's annual membership meeting held in conjunction with the 2018 National Association of Collegiate Directors of Athletics Convention scheduled for June 28-30 in Washington, D.C.
