Brandon Ellis Named Academic All-District in Football
Nov. 11, 2011
EASTON, Pa. - Senior cornerback Brandon Ellis has been placed on the Capital One Academic All-District II Football Team.
Ellis, who is a three-year starter in the defensive backfield, collects the honor for the second straight season and was named to the inaugural Academic All-Patriot League Team in 2010. Ellis leads Lafayette with 10 pass breakups and is also fifth on the team with 55 tackles.
An Economics major, Ellis maintains a 3.49 overall grade-point average and boasted of a perfect 4.0 GPA in the spring semester.
Ellis serves as a peer mentor in the College's Academic Tutoring and Training Information Center and as a Gateway Ambassador for Career Services. In 2010, his learning experiences took him outside the classroom in a summer internship with Johnson & Johnson.
Academic All-District selections must have reached their sophomore year academically while maintaining a minimum cumulative GPA of 3.30. They must also be a starter or key reserve on their team. District winners will be placed on a national ballot and the Capital One Academic All-America Team will be announced on Dec. 8.
