Sophomore forward Ryan Bohrer of the Canisius College hockey team shared Atlantic Hockey Scholar Athlete of the Year honors, announced by the league on Monday. Overall, Bohrer is one of a school-record 18 Griffs recognized on the Atlantic Hockey All-Academic Team.
Bohrer earned the league's top academic honor after earning a perfect 4.0 grade point average for the second-straight year. The sophomore forward tallied five points, one goal and four assists in 24 games during the 2010-11 season.
Joining Bohrer on the All-Academic Team included senior Scott Moser, who collected the accolade for the fourth time in his career. Juniors Torrey Lindsay, Ben Parker and Preston Shupe were selected to the All-Academic Team for the third time.
Bohrer and classmate Taylor Law were each named to the team for the second time, while sophomores Tony Capobianco, Brian McGinty and Patrick Sullivan plus freshmen Keegan Asmundson, Stephen Farrell, Cody Freeman, Matthew Grazen, Doug Jessey, Carl Larsson, Mitch McCrank, Logan Roe and Tyler Wiseman became first-time honorees.
To qualify for the Atlantic Hockey All-Academic Team, an individual must post a 3.0 grade point average or higher in each academic semester during the 2011-12 year.
The Griffs return 23 letterwinners this year from the 2010-11 season, including 93.6 percent of their scoring.
