MANHATTAN, Kan. – Kansas State sophomore offensive lineman Adam Holtorf has been named to the 2017 Academic All-District 7 first team, the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) announced Thursday.
It is Holtorf’s first time being named an academic all-district performer and the first by a Wildcat since Jack Cantele and Glenn Gronkowski were honored in 2015.
Holtorf, who carries a 3.94 GPA in agribusiness, was named a First Team Academic All-Big 12 performer earlier in the day as he was one of 10 players – including three Wildcats – who were nominated with a 4.0 GPA over his previous two semesters.
A product of Seward, Nebraska, Holtorf has started all 10 games this year at center, helping the Wildcats average 4.9 yards per carry to rank fourth in school history. Prior to playing two games during his redshirt freshman campaign of 2016, Holtorf was a two-year First Team Class B All-State selection by the Lincoln Journal-Star and Omaha World-Herald.
By being named a First Team Academic All-District 7 honoree, Holtorf now advances to the CoSIDA Academic All-America Team ballot, with first- and second-team Academic All-America honorees to be announced in December.
The Wildcats venture to 10th-ranked Oklahoma State on Saturday, a 2:30 p.m., contest inside Boone Pickens Stadium that will be shown nationally on ESPN2.
K-State returns home for Senior Day against Iowa State on Saturday, November 25. The game will kick off at either 11 a.m., on FS1 or 2:30 p.m., on ESPN2 or ESPNU, and a determination for kick time and television designation will be made Sunday morning.
Tickets for the home finale are available for $65 apiece or $37.25 per ticket when purchasing a Wildcat 4 Pack. Fans can buy tickets by clicking here, calling 1-800-221-CATS or visiting the main ticket office inside Bramlage Coliseum.
