Cruise Coulter represented the Campbellsville football team on the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team in the College Division, the national organization announced on Monday afternoon.
The CoSIDA Academic All-America® program separately recognizes honorees in four divisions — NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II, NCAA Division III and College Division. The College Division includes all NAIA, Canadian, two-year schools, and other affiliations.
Coulter appeared in all 10 games this year for the Tigers and put up career numbers for Campbellsville.
Coulter caught 10 passes this season for a total of 174 yards. His 17.4 yards per catch were second most on the team.
The native of Mount Washington, Kentucky caught a pair of touchdowns passes and had a long of 44 yards.
Off the field, Coulter has compiled a 3.52 grade point average and majors in Health & Physical Education. The redshirt junior was one of two tight ends to earn the national recognition.
Within the Mid-South Conference, Coulter was one of seven student-athletes named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team.
In order to be nominated for the award by an institution’s sports information director a student-athlete must maintain a grade point average of at least 3.30 on a 4.00 scale and must hold at least a sophomore athletic status.
Coulter also becomes the first football student-athlete to earn Academic All-America honors and the 10th different student-athlete all-time in Campbellsville athletics history.
