Urbana University’s Underwood named Academic All-American

Urbana University senior linebacker Drew Underwood, pictured, (West Jefferson, OH) has been named to the 2012 CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American team. Underwood earned Second Team honors after turning in one of the most successful careers in the history of the Blue Knight football program.

A two-time Academic All-Conference selection and four-year starter, Underwood boasts a 3.68 cumulative GPA as an Education/AYA Social Studies major. He just recently put the finishing touches on a terrific career, appearing in all 44 games over the past four seasons and guiding the Class of 2012 to the best four-year record in school history (26-18).

Underwood finished with 249 career tackles, including 80 stops in 11 games as the starting middle linebacker for the 7-4 Blue Knights this season. He also recorded 11 quarterback hurries, 9.5 tackles for a loss, 4 pass break-ups, 2 forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a sack, earning All-Conference honors for the third straight season. The GLFC's 2011 Linebacker of the Year also earned the Urbana University Athletic Department's Academic Achievement award as the top male student-athlete during the 2010-11 school year.

The 2012 COSIDA/Capital One Academic All-American Football Teams are selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, recognizing the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.

Underwood's Academic All-American honor is the first of his career, and he becomes the first Blue Knight to receive the honor during the NCAA D-II era.
