Five Honored as AHCA All-American Scholars
TEMPE, Ariz. -- Five Arizona State hockey student-athletes have been recognized by the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) for compiling exceptional results in the classroom during the 2020-21 season, earning the title of Krampade All-American Scholars, the AHCA announced on Monday.
Seniors Sean Dhooghe and Jacob Wilson, junior Jarrod Gourley, sophomore Jacob Semik, and freshman Matthew Kopperud represented the Sun Devils on the list of 532 Division I men's hockey student-athletes.
Due to the effects of Covid-19, the AHCA adopted revised criteria for this year's honorees. To qualify, a student-athlete must have attained a 3.6 GPA for each semester, regardless of whether the school's hockey team was able to play this season or not.
Normally, a student-athlete is required to participate in a minimum of 40% of a team's games. The honor is open to any program who is a member of the AHCA.
Wilson earned the award for the fourth time in his career - the Missouri native has achieved the honor every single year of his collegiate career. Gourley earned the award for the third time in his career. It is the first award for Dhooghe, Kopperud and Semik.
