San Diego Academic Camp

This week's recruiting trip to the Hoop Mountain Elite Student Athlete Prospect Camp held on the campus of University of California, San Diego was very productive. The Hoop Mountain guys always run a great camp and attract top tier academic student-athletes, which makes it convenient for schools like Trinity to know that each athlete we are watching is also focused on his academics. There were definitely a couple of players that we will continue watching through out this July period.

Setting an Academic Standard

It ceases to amaze what great student-athletes Trinity University attracts. Recently, the SCAC announced the Spring 2015 Academic Honor Roll and the Trinity Tigers lead the way again with 124 recipients. We would like to acknowledge our five Trinity Basketball honorees:

Matthew Bender, FY - Undecided
Jimmy Clark, SO - Business Finance Major, Global Health Management Major
Matt Jones, FY - Undecided
Matt Selling, SR - Business Finance Major, Sports Management Minor
William Young, SR - Business Accounting Major, Business Finance Major

These young men have maintained the strong academic standard that we strive towards and set a tone for all of our team. We are proud that our team GPA is still above the average male student's GPA here at Trinity, which shows the hard work our student-athletes have put in off the court.

Congrats guys and keep up the good work!
