Two DWU football players earn academic honors
Two members of the Dakota Wesleyan University football team were honored for their excellence off the field according to an announcement made Thursday.
Junior running back Eric Lundberg and senior offensive lineman Skyler Eriksen each were awarded CoSIDA academic all-district honors. Both players are now eligible for academic All-American honors that will be voted upon later this fall.
The honor is the second for Eriksen, who holds a 3.8 grade point average and is majoring in elementary education.
