Elliott Honored by Capital One and CoSIDA

Senior football player Kyle Elliott was named to the Capital One/College Sports Information Directors of America Academic All-District First Team in November.

Named to the team for the second year in a row, Elliott was one of 27 players on the Division I District I team, joining players from Albany, Brown, Colgate, Cornell, Dartmouth, Fordham, Harvard, Holy Cross, Maine, Marist, New Hampshire, Syracuse, and the U.S. Military Academy. To be eligible for the team, student-athletes must carry a 3.3 or better grade point average, be a starter or key reserve, and be at least a sophomore in academic standing.

The Cresskill, N.J., native finished his career making 32 consecutive starts as right guard for the Rams, dating back to his sophomore season. He came to URI as a quarterback, then played defensive end before making the switch from defense to offense early in 2010.

Elliott has excelled in the classroom since his arrival on campus. He finished his degree in finance in the spring of 2012, graduating as the University’s top senior finance student with a 3.63 grade point average, earning the University Excellence Award in Finance in the process.

He returned for his final season as a communications student, and has a cumulative grade point average of 3.57. While at URI, Elliott has been inducted into the international honor society Beta Gamma Sigma as a junior. He also is a three-time CAA Football Academic All-Conference Team member.

The Capital One Academic All-District program recognizes the nation’s top student-athletes for their combined performances athletically and in the classroom. As a first-team selection, Elliott is eligible for the Academic All-America Team ballot.
