To be eligible for the award, student athletes had to have a 3.0 grade point average and complete community service hours during the school year.

These student-athletes are being honored for their achievements in the classroom, on the field and in their community. $20,000 is being donated to the Sun Devil Club by State Farm on behalf of the student athletes who were recognized.
