Hunter earns Academic All-American honors

AUSTIN, Texas -- Senior offensive lineman Tyler Hunter has been named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America First Team, as announced on Wednesday. Hunter is the sixth recipient of the honor in Berg football history, and the first since Stephen Smith (2015).

The Tipp City native was a CoSIDA Academic All-District honoree in 2016 and 2017. He is also a three-time Academic All-OAC selection.

Hunter, a health science major, played a key role in the offensive line for the Student Princes. He was named second team All-OAC this season.

With the honor, another medallion will be placed on the Adams Academic All-American Plaza outside of Hoernemann Stadium. Five other Heidelberg football players have earned Academic All-American status, including Craig Sykes '13, who earned the honor twice.
