The 108 selections encompass all 11 Lion athletic programs, led by 37 from football, 16 from soccer and 12 each from both mens’ and women’s track and field and cross country.
The 2012-13 season had a handful of academic highlights for A&M-Commerce, including Andrew Davis of men’s basketball being named a first team Capital One Academic All-American. In addition, four Lions were named the Lone Star Conference Academic Player of the Year for their respective sport (Brionna Minde – soccer, Davis – men’s basketball, Sara Diaz – women’s golf, Alex Kimp – men’s track and field).
