Central senior tight end Mitchell Boerm was tabbed for the CoSIDA Academic All-America squad.
Boerm, a second-team selection, carries a 3.76 grade point average while majoring in biology. He was earlier named a first-team all- Iowa Conference choice with 25 catches for 383 yards and two touchdowns.
It’s the 53rd time that a Central athlete has received the honor and the 13th time a Dutch football player was selected. Boerm is the first football honoree since Ben Bollard in 2006.
