Dolphins Place 17 on PFL Academic Honor Roll
Feb. 12, 2003
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville University football placed 17 student-athletes on the Pioneer Football League Academic Honor Roll for the Fall 2002 semester, the league announced today. More than 250 student-athletes were honored among the nine conference institutions.
"We are extremely proud of the success we had this year, both in the classroom and on the field," JU athletic director Hugh Durham said. "Not only does the PFL provide us with excellent competition on the field, but it is one of the top academic football conferences in the country."
PFL athletic directors and coaches established the honor roll last season as a way to recognize the league's outstanding student-athletes. The academic honor roll consists of student-athletes who participated in football at member institutions during the fall semester and posted a 3.0 grade point average or higher while enrolled full time in accordance with NCAA rules.
The Dolphins are entering their sixth season of NCAA Division I-AA non-scholarship football this fall, including their third season as a member of the Pioneer Football League. JU won the PFL South Division Championship during its inaugural season in the league in 2001.
