Grossberg Earns Academic Honors...Again

Aaron Grossberg (8) and Surafel Wodajo (10)

Pacific Lutheran senior soccer player Aaron Grossberg was acknowledged as an NCAA Post Graduate Scholarship recipient this week for his outstanding performance on the field and in the classroom.

Grossberg, a biology major from Corvallis, Ore., was also recognized as a First Team Academic All-American for maintaining a 3.97 GPA and locking down opposing forwards on defense for the Lutes earlier this season. The scholarship entitles the Oregon native to a $7,500 grant to apply toward a university or professional school of choice upon graduation from PLU. He has intentions of pursuing his academics at a physician's assistant graduate program.

Grossberg becomes only the sixth Lute in school history to earn the prestigious award. Past PLU recipients of the NCAA Post Graduate Scholarship include Ryan Dirks (2000-01, track and field, physical education major), Lisa Ossiander (2001-02, cross country, chemistry and German double-major), Jenne Heu-Weller (2003-04, volleyball, biology major), Carrie Larsen (2003-04, track and field, Spanish major), and Andrea Wells (2004-05, softball, physical education major).
