Rosser bestowed academic honor

LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas football’s senior defensive end Cameron Rosser earned First Team Academic All-District honors the College Sports Information Directors of America announced Wednesday.
Pooled in District 7 with universities in Colorado, Idaho, Kansas, Montana, Nebraska, Oklahoma, Texas and Wyoming, Rosser was one of three graduate students on the pool’s 24-person first team. A 2015 Academic All-Big 12 First Team member, Rosser was honored by CoSIDA for his combined performances athletically and in the classroom.
A native of Las Vegas, Nevada with a degree in business administration, Rosser earned the accolade by posting a 3.54 GPA, while making 4.0 sacks and 7.0 tackles for loss for the Jayhawks in 2016. His best on-field performance came in KU’s one-point loss to TCU on Oct. 8 when he gathered 3.0 sacks and 4.0 tackles in the backfield.
Rosser is now eligible for CoSIDA Academic All-America honors, which will be announced later this month. The Academic All-Big 12 team will also be selected in the coming weeks.
The Academic All-District teams are divided into eight geographic districts across the United States and Canada. This is the sixth year of the expanded Academic All-America program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non-Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division Academic All-America® Team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools.
