Krupko, Wallace Named Academic All-District

Jake KrupkoThe Urbana University football team landed two players on the 2013 CoSIDA/Capital One Academic All-District® Football Teams, announced on Thursday. Senior cornerback Jake Krupko (Homeworth, Ohio/Marlington HS) and senior center Kyle Wallace (West Milton, Ohio/Milton-Union HS) were selected to the prestigious squad, following in former teammate Drew Underwood's footsteps. Underwood became the first Blue Knight football player of the D-II era to earn Academic All-District honors. He later earned 2012 Academic All-American honors.

The 2013 Capital One Academic All-District® 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.

Krupko, a 2-time Academic All-Conference selection and 4-year starter currently boasts a 3.62 cumulative GPA as an Exercise Science major. Krupko is the active leader in interceptions at Urbana with 7 over his 4-year career. The team co-captain is currently 12th in the country in passes defended (14).

Kyle WallaceWallace is making his 31st consecutive start at center this Saturday. (The Blue Knights are 21-9 over that stretch.) Wallace has maintained a perfect 4.0 cumulative GPA over his academic career, majoring in Biology/Pre-Physical Therapy. He is on pace to make his third consecutive Academic All-Conference team, and he earned Preseason All-American honors from USA College Football this season. Twice, Wallace has picked up Honorable Mention All-Conference awards for his work on the field, and together with Krupko, Wallace won the team's most prestigious award, the "Want To-Tempo-Us" Award handed out by the Blue Knight coaching staff after last season.

Krupko and Wallace were 2 of 4 Blue Knights who qualified to be nominated for Academic All-District. Other Urbana nominees included senior wide receiver Nate Wilburn-Ogletree (Dayton, Ohio) and sophomore linebacker Taylor Cayot (Bellefontaine, Ohio).

Like Underwood before them, Krupko and Wallace now become eligible for Academic All-American honors, which will be announced later this month.
