TEMPE, Arizona – Five Arizona State student hockey athletes have been recognized by the American Hockey Coaches Association (AHCA) for compiling outstanding in-class results during the 2020-21 season, winning the Krampade All title -American Scholars, the AHCA announced on Monday.
Elders Sean Dhooghe and Jacob Wilson, junior Jarrod Gourley, second year Jacob Semik, and first year Matthew Kopperud represented the Sun Devils on the list of 532 Division I male student-athletes.
Due to the effects of Covid-19, the AHCA has adopted revised criteria for this year’s winners. To qualify, a student-athlete must have achieved a cumulative GPA of 3.6 for each semester, regardless of whether the school hockey team was able to play that season or not.
Normally, a student-athlete should participate in at least 40% of a team’s matches. The honor is open to any AHCA member program.
Wilson has won the award for the fourth time in his career – the Missouri native has won the honor every year of his college career. Gourley won the award for the third time in his career. This is the first prize for Dhooghe, Kopperud and Semik.
