The PSAC is known for its exceptional student-athletes and their excellence both on the fields and in the classrooms.

Two of the most outstanding student-athletes in the conference walk the campus of Edinboro University.

Cody Harris and Meghan Kelly were listed as one of the top five men and top five women recognized for their academic and athletic achievements during the fall sports season. Candidates must have at least a 3.50 GPA to qualify and were voted on by PSAC Sports Information Directors.

Harris graduated in December with a degree in human performance and a 3.87 GPA. The Waldo, Oh. native just finished up his sixth-season as a member of the football team and the quarterback ranks second to older brother Trevor in nearly every passing and total offense statistic for Boro football.

In ten games this past season, Harris completed 238 of 342 passes, amassing 2,344 yards with 18 touchdowns and three interceptions. He led the PSAC and ranked second in Division II in completion percentage, while leading the conference and finishing 11th in D-II for completions per game. The two-time second-team AllPSAC selection (2011 and ’12) accounted for 23 of Edinboro’s 32 touchdowns this season.

Kelly was the women’s soccer team’s goalkeeper for the last four seasons while maintaining a perfect 4.0 GPA. The early education/special education major has had an illustrious career herself leading Edinboro to four PSAC tournament appearances and three NCAA playoffs during her four seasons. She holds school records for career wins (41) and shutouts (21). Her 1.03 goals against average is second in program history. She amassed a 41-23-7 record while starting in 70 matches.

The Mars, Pennsylvania native holds the school record for minutes in goal spending 6,497 between the posts. She also finished second in career saves with 300.

Robbie Bennett (Gannon), Aaron Dinzeo (California (Pa.)), Colin Kimball (Mercyhurst) and Liam Nadler (Gannon) round out the five for the men while Chelsea Crockett (California (Pa.)), Lucy Kauffman (Shippensburg), Nicole Krueger (Slippery Rock) and Laura Subject (Clarion) were the other females to receive the honor.
