Hohlbein Earns CoSIDA Academic All-America Honor

 

AUSTIN, Texas – Taylor University’s Grant Hohlbein has been named a CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-America standout, as recently announced by the College of Sports Information Directors of America.

 

The prestigious 27-man list was voted on and selected by members of CoSIDA, recognizing the finest student-athletes from around the nation at NAIA, Canadian and two-year institutions. A total of 20 institutions were represented on the list, with no school accounting for more than two student-athletes.

 

Holbein was selected as a CoSIDA First-Team Academic All-American for the first time in his career following a breakout season on the gridiron with the Trojans. Hohlbein ranked 13th among all NAIA players with 6.6 receptions per game and closed the 2017 season with 66 catches for 623 yards and five touchdowns.

 

The Lenawee Christian product boasts a 3.97 cumulative grade-point average as a political science, philosophy and economics major at Taylor and will receive his second Academic All-MSFA and NAIA Scholar-Athlete nods later this month.

 

The honor for Hohlbein is Taylor’s second CoSIDA Academic All-America recognition of the 2017-2018 year, following Lauren Engelkes of the TU women’s soccer program in receiving the award.

 

Taylor now boasts 67 CoSIDA Academic All-Americans in school history with 37 First-Team awards. TU football now has 15 of those Academic All-America honors and 13 First-Team nods.
