Clarksville, TN – Austin Peay State University football team offensive lineman Ryan Rockensuess was named to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District™ Teams, Thursday.
Rockensuess was recognized in a district-wide vote of sports information directors from North Carolina, Tennessee and Virginia, which comprises the institution’s third district.
Rockensuess, from Troy, Michigan, has become an anchor along the Austin Peay interior line, starting 11 games for the league leader in total offense (385.7 ypg) and rushing offense (252.7 ypg).
An accounting major, Rockensuess shines in the classroom as well, carrying a 3.57 grade-point average. He’s earned Dean’s List honors the past two springs and is a four-time member of the Athletic Directors Honor Roll.
