Adams named Academic All-America
TOWSON, Md. – Sophomore quarterback Trevor Adams was honored Wednesday not only for helping lead Northwest Missouri State to the NCAA National Quarterfinals, but for his work in the classroom as he was named Second Team Academic All-America by the College Sports Information Directors of America.
Adams started the season as the Bearcats backup quarterback, but was thrust into the starting role when senior Blake Christopher went down with multiple injuries. Adams was one of only four players on either the first- or second-teams to hold a 4.00 GPA. He is majoring in biology.
The Odessa, Texas, native started eight games for the Bearcats including three road playoffs starts. The sophomore threw for 2,202 yards and 21 touchdowns on the year. He completed 61 percent of his passes and was ranked all season among the top 10 in the nation in passing efficiency.
The Capital One Division II Academic All-America® program is being financially supported by the NCAA Division II national governance structure to assist CoSIDA with handling the awards fulfillment aspects for the 2011-12 D-II Academic All-America® teams program.
Four members of the 2011 Capital One Academic All-America Division II Football first team and eight members of the second team represent teams that qualified for the NCAA Division II Football Championship.
