The University of Alabama placed 78 student-athletes on the 2016 Fall Southeastern Conference Academic Honor Roll, the conference office announced this week.

A total of 35 members of Alabama’s 2016 SEC champion football team earned a place on the honor roll. Among those earning the academic accolade were starters O.J. Howard, JK Scott, Tony Brown, Cole Mazza, Hale Hentges and Ross Pierschbacher. The Tide’s total ranked second among the 14 SEC football squads, just behind Arkansas.

There were 12 from the Tide’s volleyball team, including All-American and Academic All-American Krystal Rivers, which ranked Alabama second among volleyball squads. The Crimson Tide’s fall tally also included 15 members of the soccer team, 11 members of the women’s cross country squad and five from the men’s cross country team.

To earn a place on the honor roll, a student-athlete must earn a 3.0 or better grade point average for either the preceding academic year or their career and be a sophomore or better in academic standing. The Fall SEC Academic Honor Roll is based on the 2016 spring, summer and fall terms. Any student-athlete who participates in an SEC championship sport or a student-athlete who participates in a sport listed on his/her institution’s NCAA Sports Sponsorship Form is eligible for nomination to the Academic Honor Roll.

The conference will release a winter and spring honor roll in the months to come and recognizes its first-year student-athletes based on grades from the fall and spring semester with an honor roll that is released in June.
