Scholar Football Teams Announced.

There is no doubt there is some correlation between having a great football team and a smart football team. Today, the NAIA announced it’s annual “Scholar Teams” list.

In order to make the list the cumulative GPA of a given team must be above a 3.0. Considering most rosters in the NAIA typically have somewhere between 80-100 players, it’s quite a feat when a football team makes the list.

This year SEVEN NAIA football teams garnered the academic award:

St. Ambrose (Iowa) – 3.27

Dakota Wesleyan (S.D.) – 3.23

Carroll (Mont.) – 3.22

Taylor (Ind.) – 3.15

Northwestern (Iowa) – 3.10

St. Francis (Ill.) – 3.03

Hastings (Neb.) – 3.00

It should be noted that the MIssouri Baptist women’s tennis team held the highest GPA of all teams participating in NAIA athletics with a 3.94 GPA.
