Dylan Swingle Named Scholar Baller® And ISSJ National Academic Momentum Award Recipient

ORLANDO, Fla. – The Scholar Baller program, in conjunction with the Institute for Sport & Social Justice (ISSJ), announced the recipients of the 2020-21 Academic Momentum Award. Dylan Swingle, a student-athlete on the BGSU men's basketball team, was one of just 18 Academic Momentum Award First Team selections.

Top nominations were categorized into three teams based on each student-athlete's academic improvement and the impact each student-athlete's academic performance had on his or her classmates, teammates, academic advisors, and professors.

Established in 1995, the Scholar Baller® movement evolved in response to concerns that the student-athletes' athletics role increasingly superseded the student role.
