Miami and Boise State share AFCA Academic Achievement Award


Miami University and Boise State University will share the American Football Coaches Association's 2011 Academic Achievement Award, which is presented by the Touchdown Club of Memphis. Miami and Boise State recorded a 100 percent graduation rate for members of its freshman football student-athlete class of 2004.

This is the first honor for Miami and Boise State since the award's inception. The award will be presented at the AFCA president's luncheon on Monday, Jan. 9, at the 2012 AFCA Convention in San Antonio.

"We thank the American Football Coaches Association for this prestigious recognition," said Brad Bates, Miami's director of athletics. "This award represents not only the academic performance of our football students but is symbolic of the culture Miami's faculty creates, the quality of students all our coaches recruit to Oxford and the cognitive inquiry by our students while they compete athletically at the highest level of the NCAA."
