WASHINGTON - The Georgetown University football program had 31 student-athletes named to the Patriot League Academic Honor Roll when the league office announced the list on Friday morning. The 30 honor roll selections are the second-highest total in the PL.

"Led by Harrison Glor, who achieved a perfect 4.0 GPA, this group exemplifies the true meaning of the word student-athlete. Special thanks to our academic coach, Dr. Shelly Habel and the outstanding faculty and deans who make Georgetown a truly special place."
