GRANVILLE, Ohio – Denison football landed three CoSIDA Academic All-District® selections on Thursday with seniors Andrew Zellers, Ben Cross, and Alex Minton earning first-team honors. The trio will now advance to the national ballot for a chance to be named to the CoSIDA Academic All-America® team.

Named to the Academic All-District® first-team for the second-straight year, Cross has started all nine games at defensive end for the Big Red in 2019, totaling 17 tackles, 2.5 sacks, and two forced fumbles. Cross boasts a 3.92 cumulative grade-point average and is majoring in philosophy, politics, and economics. Through 39 games in his career, Cross has tallied 79 tackles and 12 tackles for loss.  A CoSIDA Academic All-America® selection in 2018, Cross was recognized at the James T. Glerum Top-50 Student-Athlete Celebration in 2018 and 2019.

Also repeating on last year's first-team honor, Zellers has started all 40 games in his career on the Big Red's offensive line, including the last 20 games as the starting center. He is a two-time All-NCAC honorable mention selection and was twice recognized at the James T. Glerum Top-50 Student-Athlete Celebration and on the NCAC Academic Honor Roll. He is an economics major and carries a 3.83 grade-point average.

Minton is making his debut on the Academic All-District® first-team after posting an NCAC-best 1,295 rushing yards and 18 combined touchdowns through the first nine games of the season. He is a two-time All-NCAC selection and was named to the D3football.com All-North Region third-team in 2018. His 41 career rushing touchdowns are a Denison record while his 3,664 yards on the ground are the fourth-most in program history. A native of Bethel Park, Pa., Minton carries a 3.35 GPA and is currently majoring in biology.

Denison University ranks among the leaders in NCAA Division III with 96 CoSIDA Academic All-America® selections. Created in 1952 by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), the CoSIDA Academic All-America® program is a premier, nationwide college scholar-athlete awards program. It recognizes over 800 outstanding student-athletes annually in Division I, II, III and NAIA covering all NCAA championship sports.
