Flames wide receiver repeats as Capital One Academic All-American

December 10, 2012 : Liberty University Athletics

For the second year in a row, Liberty wide receiver Pat Kelly has been named to the Capital One Academic All-America® Football Division I first team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). This is the top collegiate academic honor that an NCAA student-athlete can earn.

The senior has maintained a perfect 4.0 GPA in his pursuit of an exercise science degree. He is the second Liberty student-athlete to be named to multiple CoSIDA Academic All-America® first-team listings. Mike Gelatt, of the men's soccer team, accomplished the feat for the first time with CoSIDA Academic All-America® first-team selections in 2007 and 2008.

Overall, Kelly is the 18th student-athlete in athletics department history to be named to a CoSIDA Academic All-America® Division I team and he is the sixth to be named to multiple teams.
