LAWRENCE, Kan. -- Kansas senior offensive lineman Trevor Marrongelli was named to the Capitol One CoSIDA Academic All-District 7 football team, it was announced Thursday. Marrongelli has earned a spot on the team for the second-straight year.
Marrongelli graduated with a bachelor’s degree in finance with a 3.78 grade point average in May 2012. The Austin, Texas native is currently pursuing a master’s degree in business administration and serves as a teaching assistant in the finance department. He is a three-time Academic All-Big 12 first team honoree and a four-time member of the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll.
On the field, Marrongelli has been a part of one of the top offensive lines in the Big 12 this season. He has started all nine games for the Jayhawks at center and been instrumental in helping pave the way for halfback James Sims, who leads the Big 12 and ranks ninth nationally in rushing with 124.7 yards per game.
Marrongelli is now eligible for Academic All-American honors, which will be announced later this month. The Academic All-Big 12 team will also be selected in the coming weeks.
Marrongelli and his KU teammates travel to Texas Tech for their next outing Saturday, Nov. 10. Kickoff is scheduled for 11 a.m., with a live broadcast on Fox Sports Net.
