It was recently announced on Broncosports.com that a total of 56 Boise State athletes received Mountain West Conference All-Academic Honors. Of those 56 athletes, 30 of them were part of coach Chris Petersen's football team.
Chris Petersen has continually proven that academics are a very important part of his program. Under Petersen's direction, the Broncos have not not only proven that they are a top program in the Mountain West, but they have also earned top-10 status in the national BCS Academic Rankings for a total of six straight years.
In 2012, Boise State finished third in those rankings, and in 2011 and 2010 the Broncos were second.
The consistent pattern of academic success proves that coach Petersen and his staff not only demand their players be excellent on the field, but they must be successful in the classroom as well. It is something that Bronco Nation should certainly be proud of.
Here is the list of those players who were recognized in this latest round of academic good news for the Boise State football program:
