Feenstra named RMAC Summit Award recipient


COLORADO SPRINGS (November 24, 2015) - Colorado State University-Pueblo football offensive lineman Corbin Feenstra (So., Superior, Colo.) was named the 2015 Rocky Mountain Athletic Conference Summit Award winner announced by league officials.

The RMAC Summit Award is presented to the student-athlete with the highest cumulative grade-point average participating at the final sites for each of the RMAC's championships. Since football does not have a conference championship location, the award is given to a student-athlete playing for the RMAC champion.

Feenstra, a sophomore majoring in Pre-Business, owns a 4.0 GPA. This year he was named RMAC First Team All-Academic and All-RMAC First Team Offense, and in recent years landed on the Academic All-RMAC Honor roll.

Feenstra helped guide the Pack to a 27-14 win over University of Indianapolis in the opening round of the NCAA Playoffs Satruday. Feenstra and Co., allowed the ThunderWolves to total 331 yards of offense, which included 221 net rushing yards.

The Superior, Colorado native and starter on the offensive line helped the ThunderWolves to a perfect 9-0 RMAC record. They earned their fifth-consecutive RMAC title and fifth straight trip to the NCAA Division II Football Playoffs after winning the National Championship last season.

All GPAs are based on a straight grade scale to ensure consistency among institutions. Any tie is broken by the number of credits completed.

Eligible student-athletes are sophomore or above who have participated in their sport for at least two years with their school. They must be an active member of the team, traveling and competing at the championship.
