In case you were wondering, Villanova Wildcats starting linebacker Don Cherry majors in finance and carries a cumulative 3.38 GPA. He has found himself on Villanova's Dean's List three times and was named the Villanova Student-Athlete of the Month in December. Those academic credentials have helped to earn him a spot on the 2014 CAA Football Academic All-Conference team, the league announced.
Among the conference honorees -- a list of 205 CAA football players -- Cherry was voted the 2014 Student-Athlete of the year.
"Don Cherry is the epitome of what a student-athlete should be," said Villanova head coach Andy Talley. "He is a true All-American who is very deserving of this honor."
Villanova tied with James Madison for the third most Academic All-Conference selections, behind Delaware (28) and New Hampshire (23).
