ST. LOUIS, Mo. – For the first time in Pioneer Football League history, more than 700 student-athletes were named to the PFL Academic Honor Roll. The league recognized 725 student-athletes from its 11 member institutions to the 2022 PFL Academic Honor Roll.

A complete listing of all student-athletes named to the honor roll, listed alphabetically by member school, is available in the attached PDF.

The 725 student-athletes recognized broke the previous record of 663 set during the Fall 2021 season. The league average of 65.9 student-athletes per school also broke a record set following the Spring 2021 season.

Four PFL member schools set records for student-athletes recognized on the Academic Honor Roll: St. Thomas (79), Davidson (75), Valparaiso (64), and Morehead State (62). In addition to St. Thomas and Davidson, Dayton (77), Drake (76), and Butler (70) saw at least 70 of their student-athletes named to the honor roll.

Pioneer Football League athletic director and coaches established the honor roll in 2001 to recognize the league’s outstanding student-athletes. The league has recognized more than 10,000 student-athletes on the PFL Academic Honor Roll.

The PFL Academic Honor Roll consists of student-athletes who participated in football at member institutions during the semester of competition and posted a 3.0 grade-point average or higher during the fall semester while enrolled full-time in accordance with NCAA rules.
