GENESEO, N.Y. – SUNY Geneseo men's soccer senior Brad Campion was named College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Third-Team Academic All-America®, announced Friday. Annually awarded to the nation's top student-athletes for their performances on the playing field and in the classroom, Campion is only the fifth CoSIDA Academic All-America in Geneseo history and the third to win the award multiple times after also garnering the recognition last year.
A three-time State University of New York Athletic Conference (SUNYAC) First-Team honoree and a 2014 NCAA Division III All-East Region Third-Team selection, Campion started at back in 14 games for the Knights this year. The history and adolescence education dual major currently holds a 3.74 cumulative GPA.
A two-time SUNYAC Commissioner's List and All-Academic Team member as well as a Dean's List honoree, Campion is actively involved in Geneseo's History Club, Kappa Delta Pi Education Honor Society and the Elementary and Secondary Education Association (ESEA). An appointed member of the Undergraduate Student Association Elections Committee (USAEC), Campion was also a teaching fellow with Rochester Prep last summer. He formerly served as the president of Geneseo's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee (SAAC).
Geneseo finished the 2016 campaign with a 9-7-2 record, including a 4-5 conference mark that left them just one-point shy of qualifying for the postseason tournament.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must have at least a 3.3 cumulative grade point average in at least their sophomore season and be a starter or a key reserve. The first-team all-district honorees from all eight districts in the nation moved on to the national ballot for Academic All-America consideration.
