Twenty TLU football players receive ASC All-Academic honors
Posted on 1/31/2018 5:00:00 AM.
(Seguin) – Texas Lutheran University placed 20 football student-athletes on the American Southwest Conference's 2017 Fall All-Academic Honor Roll. 
To be eligible for ASC All-Academic honors, student-athletes must be classified academically as a sophomore, junior, senior or graduate student during the competition season and have been in attendance and completed at least one academic year (two consecutive semesters) at their institution.
Student-athlete honorees must also have a 3.0 cumulative grade point average (GPA) as certified at the conclusion of the academic semester in which the ASC sport championship is held.
TLU Football is the university's lone sport to play in the ASC. The remaining 17 TLU collegiate sports play in the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference.
TLU returned to the ASC in football in 2017 after playing the previous four seasons in the SCAC's football conference. (The SCAC no longer fields a football league.)
Bulldog senior offensive guard Alejandro Briseno (Brownsville/River) added an All-Academic Honor Roll selection to his First Team All-ASC award.
ASC All-Conference Second Team selections Christopher Bennett (The Colony/The Colony), Ian Leslie (San Antonio/Reagan), Manny Longoria (Geronimo/Navarro), and Nwankwo Nwankwo (Richmond/Foster) claimed ASC All-Academic Honor Roll awards.
