GREENVILLE, N.C. – Coleman Ferrell has been selected to the College Sports Communicators Academic All-District Team®, the organization announced Wednesday.
The 2023 Academic All-District® Track & Field Teams, selected by College Sports Communicators, recognize the nation’s top student-athletes for their performances in competition and in the classroom.
Ferrell, an Engineering/Mathematics double major, was recently honored with the DePalo Award at ECU’s 2023 Breakfast of Champions, given to the East Carolina senior student-athlete with the highest cumulative GPA.
“Coleman is a tremendously hard-working student-athlete,” said coach Billy Caldwell. “His hard work is evident on and off the track. This is a great honor for Coleman and is a worthy accomplishment.”
The senior represented the Pirates on the track in eight meets across indoor and outdoor in 2023, including being a member two of the top-10 distance medley relay teams in program history. Following his graduation from ECU, Ferrell is heading to North Carolina to pursue his Ph.D. in statistics and operations research.
Academic All-District® honorees advance to the CSC Academic All-America® ballot. First-, second and third-team Academic All-America® honorees will be announced June 28 (women) and 29 (men).
