The Ohio High School Football Coaches Association (OHSFCA) recently named the 2015 Shoremen football team as Academic All-Ohio recipients. Only 35 of the 719 football programs throughout the state were recognized for this prestigious award. The Shoremen also received this award in 2008, 2009, 2010, 2011, 2012, 2013 and 2014. To qualify, the GPAs of the top 22 lettermen were averaged and ranked.
The OHSFCA also recognizes individuals as Academic All-Ohioans. In order to be eligible, the student-athlete must have senior standing, be named first team all-conference, all county or all-district and have a highly competitive GPA. One hundred and eleven athletes from more than 30,000 players in Ohio were so honored. Avon Lake’s representatives were offensive lineman Jordan Turner and offensive lineman Nolan Skelly.
