Three Viking Football Players Earn Preseason All-Academic Honors

The Georgia High School Football Magazine and its writers recognized three First Presbyterian Day School football players recently in their 2012 publication.

FPD senior quarterback Brooks Stroud, senior wide receiver Scott McCormick and  senior linebacker Jeremy Overman earned a spot on the GHSA Class A 2012 Preseason All-Academic Team.

According to the magazine, the award recognizes athletes based on a combination of football ability, overall academic average and coach comments.

“We are thrilled to see Brooks, Scott and Jeremy honored in this way by the Georgia High School Football Magazine,” athletic director and head football coach Greg Moore said. “The qualities that make them great students are the same qualities that make them great players and leaders on our football team.”

FPD opens the season Friday, August 31 at George Walton Academy. Kickoff is set for the 7:30 p.m.

The Vikings finished 8-3 in 2011 and qualified for the GHSA state playoffs for the first time in school history.

The First Presbyterian Day School Department of Athletics, home to multiple region and state championships in both the GISA and GHSA, strives to build the student athlete both in the playing arena and the classroom while continuing to educate and equip students to change the world for God’s glory. Now a member of the GHSA, the Vikings have continued to provide FPD athletes, coaches, fans and surrounding spectators a positive, Christian environment on a daily basis.
