March 10, 2004
JACKSONVILLE, Fla. - Jacksonville University football placed 34 student-athletes on the Pioneer Football League Academic Honor Roll for the Fall 2003 semester, the league announced today. A league-record 299 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," head coach Steve Gilbert 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 in 2001 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 seventh season of NCAA Division I-AA non-scholarship football this fall, including their fourth 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. JU Football Players on the 2003 PFL Academic Honor Roll
