To earn a spot, players must have a GPA of 3.6 or better and have played in at least 40 percent of their team’s games. Bemidji State was 2nd in the WCHA and tied for 5th in the nation.

Roo, Hampus Sjodahl, Mike Soucier and Zach Whitecloud all earned spots on the scholars squad. The Beavers had a team GPA of 3.48, which was best Of all BSU teams.
The 3-2 BSU Football team will be hosting U-Mary in the annual Lions Vision Awareness Game Saturday at 1pm. In addition to the Lions events, the Beavers will honor Dr. Mark Shanfeld and the 10 recipients of the Shanfeld-Jahner Scholarship. A decade ago, Dr. Shanfeld endowed a scholarship in honor of long time Beaver Coach Rich Jahner. As the award states: “The Jahner/Shanfeld scholarship criteria is based on character; awarded to a player who represents the program, university, alumni and community in an exemplary manner. As a loyal member of the BSU coaching staff, Coach Jahner passionately taught life lessons through the sport of football and inspired players to achieve greatness on and off the playing field. This scholarship is awarded annually to a BSU football player who embodies that same passion, loyalty and dedication to the BSU football program.” In addition to honoring Dr. Shanfeld, the 10 scholarship winners will serve as honorary captains. They are:
2017 E.J. Olszewski
2016 Christian Lunde
2015 Jake Krause
2014 Damon Benham
2013 Jordan Oien
2012 Charlie Hrdlicka
2011 Troy Dale
2010 Jake Schmidt
2009 Alex Moch
2008 Spencer Wagner
Former Lumberjack quarterback James Hendricks was recruited to NDSU as a quarterback. But as one of the nation’s premier teams, they have no shortage of blue chip quarterbacks. So to get some playing time, James met with coaches after last season and switched to safety. It seems to be a good move, as he has seen the field a lot this year and is tied for the team lead in interceptions with 3. There’s a great feature on James in the Fargo Forum.
