California University of Pennsylvania graduate students Eric Hudanick ' 20 and Noel Brouse  were both selected to the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Team on Thursday afternoon.

The Vulcans boast multiple honorees on the academic all-district team for the first time since 2017 and have featured at least one academic all-district selection 13 times in the last 15 years.

Hudanick earned CoSIDA Academic All-District laurels for the third time in his career, joining former offensive lineman Dan Jordan as the only three-time recipients of the award in recent program history.  A team captain this fall, Hudanick holds a 3.72 grade-point average (GPA) in graduate school while pursuing a master's degree in business administration with a concentration in management. The Harmony, Pa., native graduated magna cum laude in December 2020 with a bachelor's degree in economics and finance and a 3.51 cumulative GPA. Additionally, Hudanick was a semifinalist for the prestigious William V. Campbell Trophy this fall.

Brouse completed his bachelor's degree in sport management from UConn with a 3.81 cumulative GPA prior to enrolling at Cal U in the summer of 2020. He boasts a perfect 4.00 GPA while in graduate school and is pursuing a master's degree in sport management with a concentration in intercollegiate athletic administration. Brouse will be returning to the Vulcans to use his final season of eligibility in 2022 while completing a post-graduate certificate.

To qualify for the academic all-district honors, student-athletes must maintain a cumulative 3.30 GPA or higher and must have reached sophomore athletic and academic standing at their institution. Nominees also must have participated in at least 50 percent of the team's games and be a starter or important reserve with legitimate athletic credentials. The district consists of all 46 schools in Super Region One, which includes the PSAC, Great Midwest Athletic Conference (G-MAC), Mountain East Conference (MEC) and Northeast-10 Conference (NE-10).
