named ALuMNI STADIuM for the outpouring of financial support from Thiel College alumni, the facility – which opened with the Tomcats’ first game of the 2001 season against Capital University – was officially dedicated during Homecoming weekend on Saturday, Sept. 29, 2001. Alumni Stadium envelops STOEBER FIELD, named after legendary Thiel coach JOHN B. “JACK” STOEBER. PTLy

The stadium features a red brick entrance and ticket booth area, wrought iron fencing surrounding the stadium, a hospitality center which houses a memorabilia shop and a concession stand, seating for 1,400 and a FieldTurf synthetic turf system.

The stadium is also home to the VICTORy BELL (pictured middle left), which was originally part of Ridgeway Hall, a farmhouse that was bought by the college in 1876 and enlarged in 1881 to be used as a dining hall. The bell was used to call students to meals and later to announce athletic victories. After Ridgeway Hall was razed in 1955, the bell was placed on its own stand near where it had been as part of Ridgeway Hall until the mid-1970s, when it was moved to the Passavant Center, where it was used to call students to worship.

1892 Thiel College participates in its first intercollegiate football game by taking on Grove City College on Thanksgiving Day. Thiel loses the game 48-0. 1893 Thiel, known then as the "Huskies,” picks up its first-ever intercollegiate win with a 60 victory over Allegheny College. The Huskies have a Thanksgiving Day rematch with Grove City, but unfortunately lose to their Mercer County rival 28-0. 1894 Thiel has its first winning season under Coach Hildum. The Huskies win four and lose three, including an 86-0 thrashing of Fredonia Institute. The 86 points are still an all-time Thiel record. 1898 Led by player-coach J. Miller Hilbish, the Huskies set a record for wins in a season with five. Hilbish teaches the players to know their positions, run interference and use trick plays against more talented teams.

1899 The Huskies are refit with moleskin cloth suits and other articles by businessmen of Greenville. Thiel also joins the Intercollegiate Athletic League (IAL), along with Westminster College, Geneva College and Allegheny. Thiel finished third in the IAL that year. 1902

On Sept. 23, the Thiel faculty issues its Football Manifesto, which prohibits the playing of football at Thiel. In reply, some students gather on a roof and sing, "In Heaven above where all is love/There will be no faculty there."

1911 The Football Manifesto is lifted and football resumes at Thiel. Led by co-coaches Nathan Harter (for whom Harter Hall is named) and Asher F. Shupp, the Huskies finish the season 1-1. A loss to Grove City and a win against Edinboro highlights the second coming of the “first season of Thiel football”. 1916 Loyal Thiel students walk a 55-mile distance to Beaver Falls to see Thiel play Geneva to a 0-0 tie. The students travel as far as Ellwood City on Friday and finish their journey Saturday morning.

1918 The Thiel football team, led by Coach Herbert "Hub" Lynch, plays only one game, a 270 loss to Grove City, before dropping the rest of the schedule due to World War I. 1924

Head Coach Tommy Holleran takes the Huskies to Pittsburgh to face Carnegie Tech. Thiel is defeated 22-0, but puts up such a fight that Wally Steffen, head coach of Carnegie Tech, says that the team "played like Wildcats." This leads Melvin A. Blair, sports editor of the Greenville Record-Argus, to report that "they played like Tom's Cats." The name sticks and the athletic teams at Thiel are known as the Tomcats from then on.

1932

John B. Stoeber takes over the head coaching reins of the Tomcats. Although Thiel ends the season 3-6 in his first year, Stoeber remains the head coach until 1955, compiling a Thiel-record 75 wins in his 19 seasons.

1941 The Tomcats post their first undefeated season in school history with a 7-0 record. Thiel dominates their opponents by posting six shutouts and allowing only seven points the entire season.

COLLEGE, initially focused on ministry for the Evangelical Lutheran Church in America, was founded as Thiel Hall in Monaca, Pa., in 1866 and chartered by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania in 1870. In 1871 the college moved to Greenville where it has remained ever since. The first football game was played against Grove City College in 1892. HIEL

The years from 1902-1910 are referred to in Thiel College history as the “Football Manifesto”. There are some differing accounts as to why Thiel stopped playing football for this eight year period - but the most accurate history is probably found in The History of Thiel College, 1866-1974. Reportedly, a faculty manifesto was passed declaring football “too violent”, causing the students to refer to these years as the Football Manifesto. The faculty relented in 1910 after eight years of student protest and in 1911 Thiel fielded a football team for two games, one versus Grove City College and one versus Edinboro College (now Edinboro University). The second period of time when Thiel did not have a football team was from 1942-1945, during the United State’s participation in World War II. In the 103 seasons of Thiel’s football history, many important events and firsts have occurred. For example, the first football game designated a “Homecoming game” was in 1915 on Thanksgiving weekend versus Hiram College. The Tomcats prevailed 28-13 and afterwards a banquet was held

with entertainment by the college orchestra. Other milestones include: the first Thiel win: 1893 vs. Allegheny, 4-0; the 100th Thiel win: 1936 vs. Allegheny, 6-0; and the 300th Thiel win: 2001 vs. Grove City, 40-27. The most celebrated individual in Thiel’s football history is without a doubt coach JACK STOEBER. Coach Stoeber served as head football coach from 1932-1941 and again from 1946-1954. He amassed 75 wins in that time and went on to win the Dapper Dan award for outstanding contributions to athletics in Western Pennsylvania, the Greenville Man of the year award, the National Recreation Association award for distinguished service in community recreation and numerous coach of the year awards. Coach Stoeber’s career at Thiel also included stints as professor of German, head men’s basketball coach, dean of men and director of athletics. The remarkable history of excellence and achievement is remembered as the building blocks for today’s Thiel football players. Except for the two periods without football teams during Thiel’s history, varsity football has been played every year since 1892, and this year marks the celebration of the 104th season of Thiel football.

1942-45 Football is halted for the duration of World War II. It is the first gridiron stoppage at Thiel since 1918.

1967 The Tomcats win their first PAC title with a perfect 6-0 conference mark under second-year head coach Jim McCullough.

1946

1972

The Tomcats pick up where they left off in 1941 by posting their second-straight 7-0 season. Although the Tomcats allow more than seven points, they still record three shutouts, including a 2-0 win over Slippery Rock State College.

1950

McCullough leads the Tomcats to their second PAC football title with a 6-1 conference record.

1981

In their win against Case Western Reserve University on Sept. 26, the Tomcats set PAC records with 451 yards of rushing and 676 yards of total offense.

Thiel rolls to their third perfect season in school history. The Tomcats finish at 7-0 with five shutouts while outscoring their opponents 206-13. During the season they set the modern single game scoring record with 61 points against Lycoming College.

1991

1958

2000

Joe DiFebo, captain of Stoeber's 1941 team, takes over as Thiel's new head coach. DiFebo carries on the winning tradition with a 61 record.

Thiel joins the Presidents' Athletic Conference in the fall of 1958, along with Allegheny College, Washington & Jefferson College and Bethany College.

First-year head coach Charlie Giangrosso leads the Tomcats to their first winning season since 1979 with a 5-4 record.

The Tomcat football team makes its first international appearance, traveling to Munich, Germany. Thiel returns to the U.S. victorious over the Landsbert Express semi-pro team. Former player and coach Howard Weyers ‘56 and wife Kay announce lead pledge to launch the campaign to raise funds for the construction of Alumni Stadium.

Excerpts from Dr. Roy H. Johnson's The History of Thiel College: 1866-1974

2001

The Tomcats open Alumni Stadium at Stoeber Field, bringing Thiel football to campus after decades of playing on nearby Stewart Field.

2004 Thiel Football celebrates its 100th season as the Tomcats travel to Canada and defeat the University of Toronto at Lamport Stadium. The team finished with a 7-3 overall record and second in the PAC with a 4-1 mark. The Tomcats’ last seven-win season was in 1972 (7-2) when Thiel recorded its second PAC championship. 2005 Under the direction of fifth-year head coach Jack Leipheimer, the Tomcats post an unblemished 10-0 regular season mark, win the PAC title for the first time since 1972 and make the program’s first-ever NCAA Division III playoff appearance. After posting a 28-3 home victory over Johns Hopkins University in the opening round of the Division III playoffs the Tomcats suffer a 24-13 loss at Alumni Stadium to Bridgewater College in the second round to finish the year with an 11-1 record.


PERFECTION

Thiel’s  Undefeated  Regular  seasons Thiel has produced four unbeaten, untied regular seasons in its history. Three came during the tenure of legendary coach Jack Stoeber, who led Thiel to 75 wins in 19 seasons at the helm. The most recent came in 2005 under the direction of head coach Jack Leipheimer, whose team was the first in school history to advance to the NCAA Playoffs.

THIEL in the

PAC

Thiel enters its 51st season in the Presidents’ Athletic Conference in 2009, having joined the league in 1958. During its time in the PAC, Thiel has won three conference football titles - in 1967, 1972, and most recently in 2005. The winner of the PAC title earns the league’s automatic berth in the NCAA D-III Playoffs.

the TOMCAT mascot T

hrough 1923 Thiel athletic teams were known as the “Huskies”. But in 1924, greatly impressed by the spirit of the Thiel football team, Carnegie Tech head coach Wally Steffen observed that “they played like wild, wild cats.” This prompted Melvin A. Blair of the Greenville Record Argus to report “Thiel played like Tom’s cats,” in reference to head coach Dr. Thomas Holleran, a Greenville dentist and former All-America at the University of Pittsburgh. From that point thereafter the Thiel “Huskies” became known as the Thiel “Tomcats” as a tribute to Dr. Holleran.

The Tomcats


SEASON OUTLOOk E ight returning starters on both sides of the ball combined with an enthusiastic first-year head coach promise to make the Thiel Tomcats’ 2009 campaign a memorable one.

Kurt Reiser (Allegheny, ’92) replaces Jack Leipheimer who, after eight years as head coach, stepped aside to become Thiel College’s athletic director. Reiser enters his ninth season with the program; having spent his first six years coaching the offensive line and the past two as offensive coordinator and quarterbacks coach.

be senior Dan Hess. “We’re very excited to have him back,” said Reiser. In 2007, Hess rushed for 865 yards, averaged 4.9 yards per carry, and scored 11 rushing touchdowns. A strong senior season could make him Thiel’s all-time leading rusher. Senior QB Willie Bova

Senior wideout Brendan Taylor –with 684 receiving yards and six touchdown catches in 2008- is a speedy deep threat, whose 40-yard dash time has been clocked at 4.4 seconds. A football and track athlete earlier in his first three years at the collegiate level, Taylor opted instead to spend last spring concentrating on training for the 2009 football season. He, in tandem with junior receiver K. J. Smith, gives Reiser and Bova confidence in the Tomcats’ passing game.

“We have 13 seniors returning,” said Reiser. “They will provide good leadership with valuable playing experience. All of them they have a very good work ethic and will set the example in practice.”

“Willie did a good job for us last year,” said Reiser. “He grew tremendously throughout the season. He has a strong arm and has worked on his delivery and touch in the off-season. We’re looking for good things from him.” Returning to the tailback position after missing all of last season due to injury will 12

Lining up at tight end will be senior Dan Mackall. Reiser describes him as “a big kid who moves very well and has soft hands.” Moreover, he feels Mackall should compete with the best tight ends in the conference. Senior Justin Sadler and sophomore E. J. Kruse also will see time at the end position. Kruse’s height and running ability make him a passing target for Bova, while Sadler’s blocking skills make him an asset in short yardage and goal line situations.

The Tomcats are looking to rebound from an unexpected 2-8 season a year ago. Costly injuries at key positions contributed heavily to their disappointment. yet with previously untested players gaining experience -coupled with the return of seasoned veterans- expectations are high for a strong finish among the elite teams of the Presidents Athletic Conference.

Offensively the Tomcats will feature a conservative, ball-control oriented attack led by senior quarterback Willie Bova. Described by his coach as a smart, talented player and strong leader, Bova ranks among Thiel’s all-time top quarterbacks in several categories. His solid 2008 performance -194 completions on 363 attempts, 17 touchdowns, and 2,227 passing yards- merited an All-PAC honorable mention.

“We’re a physical football team,” Reiser said, noting that the line will set the tone for the rest of the offense. “We want to beat people on the line of scrimmage. I’m really counting on those guys to do that.”

Sophomore transfer Ross Gargano will complicate things for defenses as an all purpose back. Reiser says he will line up in the backfield, slot, and as a receiver. Fullback Mark Dzubak –a senior- will fulfill blocking duties in the backfield. The offensive line boasts both size and experience. On the left side are returning starters, senior tackle Nick Goettman (6-4, 293) and junior guard Gary Petrucci (6-0, 240). Joining them are center Vince Palmiere (6-0, 255) and senior right guard J. R. Kenna (6-0, 240) – a 2008 all-conference honorable mention. Junior Adam Troup (6-5, 274) and Sophomore David Mossa will vie for the fifth starting job on the line.

“(Taylor) is going to be a go-to guy for us,” Reiser said. “We’re going to lean on him. K. J. is a good fundamental receiver. He runs good routes and finds ways to make plays for us.” Defensively, Thiel figures to be strong up front. Featured among its returning veterans is junior tackle William Haase, who has been selected as a pre-season second team All-American by Consensus Draft Services. He was also a 2008 All-PAC second team selection after tallying 49 tackles and 8.5 sacks. “He’s been a tremendous player for us,” says Reiser of his junior, who set a team record with 19.5 tackles-for-loss in 2008. “He could be the best defensive lineman in the conference.”


Big things also are expected from the other tackle, junior Zack Woody, as well as junior end Matt Shields. Senior Aaron Grill and junior Jason Joens will compete for time on the other end of the line. The linebacker corps may be the deepest and strongest part of the Thiel defense. Sam Swartzfager returns for a fifth year of eligibility after having been injured last season. Senior inside backer Mike Clemens, as well as senior Clint Walker and junior Bobby Shew on the outside are all returning starters. Sophomores Ryan Dawes and Nick Gargaro will see playing time. Expectations are high for junior free safety Bryan Villegas who, according to Reiser, had a tremendous showing in spring drills. Cody Sirgey will start at cornerback after moving over from tailback last season. Reiser noted Sirgey’s vast improvement and says he is looking for him to shut down opposing receivers this year. Sophomore David urey, at strong safety, and junior corner Joe Stenger will be counted on heavily to provide much-needed pass defense. Sophomore John Madeline – second team All-PAC- returns as place-kicker. Last season he led the conference by converting 22 of 23 PAT attempts. He also made six of eight field goals. Reiser may look to Willie Bova or an incoming freshman to fill a hole at punter. Brendan Taylor, Bryan Villegas, and Ross Gargaro are all strong options to return punts and kickoffs. “We’re going to improve,” said Reiser. “I’m looking for marked improvement.

“I’m not going to throw out a record, but I’m looking for consistency and for us to compete within the conference. Our goal, of course, is a conference championship.” The Tomcats –playing all of the same opponents as last year- kick off their season with a visit to Marietta. They dropped last years’ opener –at home -to the Pioneers by a score of 21-18. “I’d like to go to Marietta and start out on the right foot with a win,” said Reiser. “It’s a game that will be a battle, but I believe we can win. I know they’re going to be better than they were last year.” Thiel’s home opener comes in week two, when it plays host to the Albion Britons. Last year’s result was a 16-0 road loss. In week three, the conference schedule starts with a road game –under the lightsat Washington & Jefferson. The Tomcats have played the Presidents tough over the years, though they’ve not come away with a victory since 2005. Reiser hopes that this is the year things change. “We’ve had great efforts against them recently,” he said. “W&J is definitely a game we look forward to on our schedule. Because of their tradition, our players get excited to play them. We’ve been close in the past, but would like this to be the year that we turn the corner on them.” Game four is on the road at Geneva, to whom Thiel fell 31-17 last year. Homecoming is the week five match up against Westminster, which took last year’s contest by a 16-10 margin in New Wilmington.

The first Tomcat victory of 2008 came at home against Bethany in a 50-44 offensive battle. This year’s game six road match up will again be a test and perhaps an indicator of where the Tomcats will stand among the PAC. Games seven and eight are both at home against Thomas Moore and Saint Vincent, respectively. Last year the Tomcats fell to the Saints, 45-14, while picking up a big 36-22 win against the Bearcats. Game nine is at Waynesburg. Last year the yellow Jackets outlasted Thiel, winning by a score of 50-35. The final game of the season is another big one, as Grove City visits Greenville for the Mercer County Cup Game. The Wolverines have won the past two contests, including last year’s by a score of 20-14. But the Tomcats plan to make sure the trophy stays in town this year. “Grove City has won the Mercer Cup the past two years,” said Reiser. “We want it back.” To realize their season goals, Reiser says, the Tomcats will have to “compete on a daily basis. Compete to be better than we were the day before, to push each other to get better, and to compete against our opponents week-in and weekout. If we do that, we’ll get to where we want to be.” - Dennis Haviland

“I am extremely excited that Kurt Reiser will be taking over the football program,” said Leipheimer, Thiel College Director of Athletics. “Kurt is a quality coach, but more importantly he is a quality person, and an outstanding role model for our athletes. There is no doubt he is the right person, at the right time for this position. He will bring a new energy to the program and I have every confidence he will be successful.” As a member of the Thiel coaching staff, Reiser has been no stranger to success. As the team’s offensive line coach from 2001 to 2006, Reiser mentored eight Tomcats to a combined 19 All-Presidents’ Athletics Conference selections. Two players – Dave Hendricks and Bob Munch – were four-time selections. In Thiel’s 11-win 2005 campaign, the Reiser-led offensive line played an integral part in securing the program's first PAC title since 1972 and its first undefeated regular season since 1950. Five members of that unit were named to the All-PAC team, with two garnering first team honors. While Hendricks turned in one of the best seasons of all time for a Thiel offensive lineman, earning AFCA first team and D3 Football.com first team All-America honors in addition to being named the Don Hansen Football Gazette National Offensive Lineman of the year and earning an invitation to participate in the Aztec Bowl, the o-line as a whole paved the way for a potent Tomcat attack.

Over the course of the 2005 season, Reiser’s line allowed only seven sacks in the regular season and aided in establishing Steve Minton as the school's all-time leading rusher and Darrell Satterfield and Brandon Chambers as one of the most prolific quarterback-receiver duos in school history. After being named offensive coordinator prior to the 2007 season, Reiser has called the shots for several of the most impressive offensive displays in Thiel football annals. In his inaugural season as the Tomcats’ offensive play-caller, running back Dan Hess set three school records in one day, racking up 327 yards and 30 points on 43 rushes in a, 62-14, drubbing of Saint Vincent College. The next season quarterback Willie Bova conducted a similar assault on Thiel passing records by completing 32 of 63 tosses for 374 yards (all three are school records). Prior to arriving at Thiel, Reiser was the offensive coordinator at Leyden High School in Chicago for six years. A 1993 Allegheny graduate, he earned his master’s degree from DePaul University in 1997. With the Gators, where he played under then-assistant coach Leipheimer, Reiser was a three-year starter at tight end and was a two-time All-NCAC selection and an All-American. Reiser was also a starter on the Gators’ 1990 National Championship team. He and his wife, Nancy, have three children: Ben, Ethan, and Ellie.


WHAT

DO yOu ExPECT FROM THIS yEAR’S TEAM?

I expect our players to strive to compete on a daily basis. We talk with them about competing on 3 levels. The first level is against yourself to try to be better than you were the day before. This will allow them to reach their full potential. The second is to compete with each other and push each other. I believe that competition brings out the best in us and as long as each of us is pushing the player in front of us to get better, then the team will get better. The third level is obvious - we want to compete on a weekly basis during the season against our opponents.

with

Coach Reiser

TEAM HAVE TO

DO yOu

SEE yOuRSELF AT

THIEL

FOR A

DO TO BE SuCCESSFuL?

WHILE?

We need great leadership from our upperclassmen. Their work ethic and commitment will set the tone for what we do during the season. We have a strong core and nucleus to build around on both sides of the ball. They must help to develop our younger guys by providing a great example on how to practice, how to handle adversity, etc. We have had adversity over the last two seasons with injuries in some key areas. Our players worked through the tough times and now are ready to reap the benefits that their hard work and perseverance have provided them.

I am going into my 9th season on the sidelines at Thiel. My wife and I have been happy here in the Greenville community and with the relationships we have built. My three kids love their schools and love being involved in baseball, basketball, gymnastics, and many other actvities. I could see us being at Thiel for a while.

HOW MuCH POTENTIAL FOR SuCCESS IS THERE AT THIEL?

This is an exciting time at Thiel. With the arrival of our new president, Dr.VanAken, and what he will bring to the college with his experience combined with the efforts that Dr. Olson has provided over the last couple of years, Thiel is headed in the right direction. Athletically, we have great potential for success here at Thiel. We have an administration dedicated to quality athletic programs, a coaching staff with an outstanding work ethic and commitment to the program, and players who have bought into our philosophy and way of doing things.

WHERE

DO yOuR LEADERSHIP

PHILOSOPHIES COME FROM?

I feel very strongly that the coaches that I have been around as a player and now as a coach have provided me with a great example of how to be an effective leader and head coach. Obviously, I have taken a great deal from my experiences with Coach Leipheimer and the time that I have spent at Thiel to this point. I have also learned a great deal playin under guys like Ken O'Keefe at Iowa, Joe Philbin with Green Bay Packers, and coaching with John Marzka at Albright. The time and experience with these coaches as mentors has enabled me to build a philosophy of coaching and leading a program.

Coach Reiser is a tremendous teacher and our line played well when we were together at Thiel (2001-2006) which really propelled us in to the national playoffs in 2005. He takes a lot of pride in what he does and has the unique ability to get the most out of his players, which has always impressed me. I have no doubt that he will succeed as a head coach.” John Marzka Head Football Coach Albright College

Kurt is an outstanding teacher who is among the best at preparing his players for success both on and off the field.” Joe Rossi

Assistant Football Coach University of Maine

I can’t think of a better person or coach to take Thiel football to the next level. Kurt is an outstanding football coach in every facet of the game. He is a great teacher and motivator. I can promise you, his players will be model citizens, students and athletes. Thiel football will win championships and win them on a consistent basis.” Robb Smith

Assistant Football Coach Rutgers University

I am extremely excited that Kurt Reiser will be taking over the football program. Kurt is a quality coach, but more importantly he is a quality person, and an outstanding role model for our athletes. There is no doubt he is the right person, at the right time for this position.” Jack Leipheimer

Thiel College Director of Athletics

An Historic cAmpus...

AT the Pittsburgh Synod convention in Greensburg in 1869, it was decided that Thiel Hall would become a college and serve western Pennsylvania. Thiel College began its corporate existence on September 1, 1870, at Phillipsburg, where it stayed until Greenville submitted an elaborate proposal to have the college moved to the Mercer County community. With a population of 1,848 in 1870, Greenville offered splendid north/south and east/west rail transportation, strong local patronage, exemplary moral and religious conditions and a pledge of $10,000 cash, five acres of land and use of a large academy building. Thiel College was initially housed in the Union or Central School, made available by the Greenville School Board. The cornerstone for Greenville Hall (pictured left), the first building on campus, was laid on August 15, 1872, while the dedication took place in conjunction with Thiel's first commencement, June 25, 1874.

Media & Opponent Information


PRESIDENTS’ ATHLETIC CONFERENCE Founded in 1955, the Presidents’ Athletic Conference continues its mission of promoting intercollegiate athletics and the pursuit of academic excellence. Comprised of 10 select private colleges - Bethany College, Chatham University, Geneva College, Grove City College, Saint Vincent College,Thiel College,Thomas More College,Washington and Jefferson College, Waynesburg University and Westminster College - the PAC remains a unique organization in this day of high pressure intercollegiate athletics. With academics at the center of each member’s philosophy, the PAC is built on the principle that an athletic program is a part of college life, but not an entity in itself. The PAC expanded to seven members in 2005 with the addition of Thomas More, formerly an NCAA Division III independent. Saint Vincent College, a former NAIA member, joined the conference as its began provisional membership status in NCAA Division III in 2006-07. Another former NAIA member, Geneva College, became the conference’s ninth member and began league play as it started NCAA Division III provisional membership in 2007-08. Chatham College became the league’s 10th member, also in 2007-08. The PAC annually crowns champions in 19 sports. In 2008-09, the conference had 41 teams represent the conference in postseason play, including 23 in NCAA Championship events. PAC championship teams receive automatic qualification (AQ) status for most NCAA Division III national championship events. All-conference status is awarded in all 19 sports. Head coaches select all-league squads for all team sports, while in individual sports such as cross country and tennis, all-PAC accolades are based upon performances at the conference championships. The PAC annually awards its men’s and women’s All-Sports Trophies to the schools which perform best across the board in PAC competition. The Washington & Jefferson College men and WestminsterCollege women captured the 2008-09 trophies (see below). True to its mission, the PAC has produced numerous Academic All-Americans and NCAA Postgraduate Scholarship winners. Last year, the league named 602 student-athletes to the PAC Academic Honor Roll, which recognizes all participating athletes who attain a term grade-point average of 3.60 or above.
