Gronkowski a Semifinalist for Draddy Trophy
This slipped through the cracks in my e-mail inbox yesterday, but Maryland senior tight end Dan Gronkowski has been named a semifinalist for the Draddy Trophy, college football's most prestigious academic honor.
The rest of the news release:
Gronkowski is one of 164 football student-athletes vying for the award, which recognizes academic excellence by a collegiate football player, and he is also a candidate for the 2008 NFF National Scholar-Athlete Awards. The NFF Awards Committee will announce as many as 15 finalists on Oct. 29. Each finalist will be recognized as part of the 2008 National Scholar Athlete Class, receiving an $18,000 post-graduate scholarship. The Draddy winner, who will receive a $25,000 post-graduate scholarship, will be announced Dec. 9.
Gronkowski is an MBA candidate who graduated in three years with a degree in marketing. The Amherst, N.Y., native also is on the watch list for the 2008 John Mackey Award, bestowed to the nation’s top tight end.
