A total of 27 student athletic trainers were recognized by the Lone Star Conference on Thursday as the league announced its annual Athletic Training Student Academic Award winners for 2016-17.

Each academic year, the LSC recognizes student athletic trainers who devote several hours to assist with the operation of the athletics department while also finding the time to excel in the classroom. To be eligible for LSC academic honors, student athletic trainers must carry at least a 3.30 grade point average with a minimum of 24 semester hours at the nominating institution. The qualifications mirror those required of student-athletes to gain LSC All-Academic recognition.

This year’s honorees represent six of the LSC’s 11 member institutions, with West Texas A&M having a league-high 10 honorees, followed by Midwestern State with eight recipients and Angelo State and Texas A&M-Kingsville with three each.  Texas A&M-Commerce had two honorees, while Tarleton State had one receive recognition.
