The Chippewas' seven honorees are the most of any program in the MAC. This marks the third straight year that CMU has led the MAC in academic all-conference selections.
Junior quarterback Dan LeFevour is on the Academic All-MAC team for the third consecutive season. Making their second appearance on the squad are junior receiver Bryan Anderson, senior quarterback Brian Brunner, senior offensive lineman Andrew Hartline and junior defensive end Frank Zombo. First-time selections are sophomore linebacker Matt Berning and junior defensive back Eric Fraser.
For the first time in 2008, any nominated student-athletes not voted to the Academic All-MAC team are recognized as Academic All-MAC honorable mention. Student-athletes from CMU earning honorable mention recognition were sophomore defensive lineman Sean Murnane, freshman linebacker Mike Petrucci and freshman receiver Jeremy Wilson.
Of CMU's seven academic all-conference selections, four (Anderson, Hartline, LeFevour and Zombo) also were named to 2008 All-MAC football team.
Central Michigan closes the 2008 season against Florida Atlantic in the Motor City Bowl on Dec. 26. Kickoff is at 7:30 p.m. at Ford Field in Detroit. ESPN will televise the contest to a national audience.
