PROVO, Utah - BYU junior wide receiver Mitchell Juergens has been named to the 2015 CoSIDA Academic All-District team announced Thursday.

The 2015 College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) Academic All-District Football Teams have been released to recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. 

Juergens, a finance major from Houston, Texas, currently has 29 receptions for 397 yards and two touchdowns for BYU while earning a 3.63 GPA. A former walk-on, Juergens caught the go-ahead touchdown with under 45 seconds to play to beat Boise State earlier this season. In the game against Boise State, Juergens caught four passes for a career-best 172 yards, including an 84-yard touchdown reception. The 84-yard reception is the fifth-longest pass play in BYU history.

This is the fifth year of the expanded Academic All-America® program as CoSIDA moved from recognizing a University Division (Division I) and a College Division (all non-Division I) and has doubled the number of scholar-athletes honored. The expanded teams include NCAA Division I, NCAA Division II and NCAA Division III participants, while the College Division Academic All-America® Team combines NAIA, Canadian and two-year schools. 

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 selected later this month.
