Here’s a great story out of the world of major college athletics.
Matthew Dellavedova, who plays basketball for St. Mary’s (CA), was named a first-team Academic All-American this week.
In addition to carrying a 3.6 GPA and progressing toward completion of his college degree, he averages over 15 points and nearly 7 assists per game. He’s also an acknowledged leader on a Gael team that plays at a national level and currently leads its conference.
A while back, I wrote a piece about the disaster of big-time college athletics; it’s only fair to point out the positive side too.
Congratulations to Dellavedova, his coach Randy Bennett, and St. Mary’s.
