Asberry tabbed Scholar Baller and ISSJ National Academic Momentum Award Recipient

ORLANDO, Fla. – Scholar Baller and the Institute for Sport & Social Justice (ISSJ) named junior guard Caleb Asberry a first-team recipient of the 2020-21 Academic Momentum Award. Asberry is one of 68 student-athletes recognized for academic improvement, one of three first-team recipients from the Sun Belt Conference and one of eight total Sun Belt Conference student-athletes.

Established in 1995, the Scholar Baller® movement evolved in response to concerns that the student-athlete's athletics role increasingly superseded the student role. Well before the Name Image and Likeness (NIL) movement, Scholar-Baller in 2004 made history as the first organization to brand educational logos (ThinkMan® and ThinkWoman®) on NCAA and NAIA student-athlete jerseys, helmets, and uniforms during athletic competition.
