Huskies honored for academics

Washington was listed today as schools being honored with the 2009 American Football Coaches Association 2009 Academic Achievement Award.
UW was listed as one of 39 schools recognized for graduating 75 percent or more of their football student-athletes from their freshmen class of 2002. That was kind of a three-coach effort to get that done as Rick Neuheisel signed that class and it was also later coached by Keith Gilbertson and Tyrone Willingham. Here’s a list of the players in that class.
The University of Notre Dame and University of Miami shared the top award for graduating 100 percent of its class that year.
Nine graduated 90 percent — Alabama, Boston College, Connecticut, Duke, Navy, Northwestern, Penn State, Rice, Southern Mississippi.
UW was among the other 30 graduating 75 percent or better — Air Force, Army, Central Florida, Florida, Illinois, Indiana, Iowa, Iowa State, Kansas, Marshall, Memphis, Miami (Ohio), Michigan, Missouri, New Mexico, North Carolina, Northern Illinois, Oklahoma State, Rutgers, South Florida, Stanford, Syracuse, TCU, Troy, Tulane, Utah State, Vanderbilt, Wake Forest, Washington and West Virginia.
As you can see, UW and Stanford were the only two Pac-10 schools honored.
This year’s award marks the second time the NCAA’s Graduation Success Rate (GSR) formula has been used to select the winner. From 1981 to 2007 the award was presented based on a formula used by the College Football Association and AFCA.
Here’s info on the GSR if you’re interested in how that’s calculated.
