The National High School Coaches Association (NHSCA) has announced their 2017 High School Academic All-Americans for the 2016-17 school year. This is the 24th year of the award that honors student-athletes that excel both in and out of the classroom.

There is a total of 163 Academic All-Americans this year, hailing from 30 states through 12 sports. The student-athletes averaged a 3.9 GPA with 50 students coming in with a 4.0 or better.

Arizona led the pack with 26 Academic All-Americans followed by Virginia (16), Pennsylvania (15) and Massachusetts (12).

“This year’s Academic All-Americans are the epitome of what a student-athlete is.  Not only do they excel on the playing field, mat, court, pool, and track, but they also excel in the classroom”, stated NHSCA CEO Bobby Ferraro.  “These student-athletes are leaders in and out of the classroom and are the future leaders of tomorrow.  We are proud to deem them Academic All-Americans.”
