Lycoming Football - Four Football Players Earn Induction Into Chi Alpha Sigma

 – The Pennsylvania Mu Chapter of Chi Alpha Sigma, the National College Athlete Honor Society, welcomed its inaugural induction class at Lycoming College via an online induction video narrated by chapter advisor and Lycoming College Associate Director of Athletics Joe Guistina, which was released on Thursday morning, April 16.

The 32 student-athletes come from 13 of Lycoming’s 18 different athletic programs and they study 24 different academic disciplines.

The criteria for induction to Chi Alpha Sigma requires that the student-athlete must be a member in good standing of a varsity athletics team. The honoree also must achieve at least junior academic standing by the fifth semester, as determined by the certifying institution, and must have achieved a minimum cumulative grade-point average of a 3.4 (on a 4.0 scale).

Chi Alpha Sigma is a nonprofit organization that was established to recognize college student-athletes who excel both on and off the field of competition. The organization was founded in 1996 by then DePauw University head football coach Nick Mourouzis. His goal was to provide outstanding student-athletes with an opportunity to become connected within a fraternal association that aligns their educational and athletic successes for a lifetime.
Athletic accomplishments of the Inductees included: six CoSIDA Academic All-District accolades, five named to all-conference team selections, three earned conference player of the week awards and nine have either individually or helped their team set school records.
