The awards continue to add up for Greenville College Football. The Upper Midwest Athletic Conference (UMAC) recently announced the academic all-conference awards for the fall 2012 semester. Greenville College Football is well represented on that list, having the 3rd-most football players selected for academic all-conference. Fifteen players earned academic all-conference by achieving a 3.5 or better grade point average (GPA) in their semester of competition.
Senior Trendon Amuzie was the lone senior for the Panthers to receive such an honor. Juniors Brendan Chambers, Josh Frewin, Immanuel Gamble, Justin Honeycutt, Greg Schimke, Matt Schuman, and Ethan White were named. Sophomores Clay Buhler, Brandon Butler, Nathan Butler, Kirk Pearce, and Bryan Waugh were named as well. Freshmen Jacob Stull and Deonte King were also recognized for their tremendous first semester in college.
In addition to their success in the classroom, Amuzie, Chambers, and Gamble received recognition for their impressive seasons on the field as well. Amuzie was named to UMAC All-Conference 1st Team and All-NCCAA 2nd Team. Chambers was named NCCAA National Offensive Player of the Year, All-NCCAA 1st Team, and UMAC All-Conference 1st Team. Gamble was named UMAC Offensive Player of the Year, All-NCCAA 1st Team, and UMAC All-Conference 1st Team. This is a testament to the hard work these men put forth everyday on and off the field.
