Bristow collects CoSIDA Academic All-District Honors

Midway, Ky. -- Max Bristow of the Midway University men’s soccer team was selected to the College Sports Information Director of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District First Team in District 2.

The CoSIDA Academic All-District men’s soccer teams have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom.

Student-athletes are nominated by their school’s Sports Information Director and voted on by the College Sports Information Directors of America in their district. The nominees must maintain at least a 3.30 cumulative grade point average (GPA), be a sophomore or higher in academic standing and be a starter or important reserve on their teams.

The CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team honor is the first for Bristow. The senior from Exeter, England also becomes the first-ever men’s soccer player to win the award since the program started in 2016.

Bristow was one of 12 selections for the All-District 2 Team for the college division. District 2 includes student-athletes from Arkansas, Illinois, Indiana, Kentucky, Louisiana and Tennessee. The college division includes institutions from the NAIA, Canada and two-year institutions.

In his senior season, Bristow started in 16 of 17 games for the Eagles and netted six goals to go with his four assists for a total of 16 points. One of his goals was also a game-winner that came in a 1-0 win over Marian on Sept. 9th.

The announcement of the CoSIDA All-District honorees comes on the heels of the River States Conference All-Conference teams. Bristow was one of five student-athletes to earn an All-Conference Second Team selection.

Bristow is not only a great player on the field, but an even better student-athlete in the classroom. Majoring in Business Administration, Bristow has maintained a 3.7 GPA in the classroom.

First Team Academic All-District honorees advance to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot, where first-, second- and third-team All-America honorees will be announced onDec 4.
