CLEVELAND, OHIO - The 54 winners of the 15th annual Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association (FCS ADA) Academic All-Star Team presented by KP Sports were announced by the FCS ADA including Old Dominion senior punter Jonathan Plisco.

There were 98 total nominees. Three conferences had seven student-athletes named to the All-Star Team - the Big Sky Conference, Missouri Valley Football Conference and the Southern Conference.

Plisco finished the season fifth in the NCAA averaging 45.0 yards per punt, earning First-Team All-America honors from Phil Steele. A native of Newport News, Plisco set the NCAA FCS career record for punting average at 45.1 yards per punt.

"The FCS ADA is pleased to honor the accomplishments of our football student-athletes each year with our Academic All-Star Team," said FCS ADA President Ron Strollo, director of athletics at Youngstown State University. "The accolades of these young men both in the classroom and on the field epitomize the definition of student-athlete and our Association looks forward to recognizing their accomplishments annually."
