  • July 5th, 2018

Eleven Crimson Tide student-athletes earned Academic All-America honors during the 2017-18 academic year, marking the fifth year in a row Alabama has reached double digits in terms of the prestigious honor.

Alabama Athletics once again led the nation in Academic All-America honors as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America, or CoSIDA.

The Crimson Tide’s total also makes Alabama the only school to earn double-digit honors for five years in a row.

Alabama has earned Academic All-America honors a Division I-best 88 times since 2009-10 and 56 times over the last five. The Tide’s five-year total is 11 better than second-place Stanford over that span.
