Recognition for Outstanding Student-Athletes

The RODGERS RECRUITING REPORT announces its plans to select a 2008 Pre-Season All Academic Team to recognize Texas High School football players who are also excellent students.
To be considered, a player needs to be in his junior year (Class of 2009) and have a 3.0 gpa. He needs to have posted a score of 1000 or better on his SAT and/or a 21 ACT composite. A player also needs to submit a highlight tape or game tape to be evaluated.
Every player that is nominated will receive an honorable mention, but the first and second teams will be based on playing ability. Players and coaches can download the Nomination Form from the Forms Page of this website. To be nominated a player must obtain the signatures of his high school coach and guidance counselor.
The program will seek to identify more STUDENT-athletes, who are deserving of consideration for ACADEMIC scholarships for college programs that recruit students well above the minimum NCAA Clearinghouse standards.
