Posted:

NEWARK, Del. -- For the second straight season, University of Delaware
senior defensive end Ethan Clark has been named to the Capital
One/College Sports Information Directors District 2 All-Academic
football team.

Clark, an exercise physiology major from Essex Junction, Vermont (Essex
High School), was among 23 players named to the team, which is comprised
of NCAA Division I players at both the Football Championship Subdivision
and Football Bowl Subdivision.

Student-athletes must carry a 3.3 or better grade point index, be a
starter or key reserve, and be a sophomore or older. District 2 includes
all schools in New Jersey, Pennsylvania, Delaware, Maryland, Washington,
D.C., Kentucky, and West Virginia.

Delaware has now had 18 student-athletes earn 22 CoSIDA District 2
All-Academic awards in 11 seasons under head coach K.C. Keeler.

A Dean's List student who carries a 3.66 grade point average at
Delaware, Clark has earned Colonial Athletic Association Commissioner's
Academic Honor Roll notice three times, is a member of the NFF Hampshire
Honor Society, and won the Blue Hen Touchdown Club Elks Club
Scholar-Athlete Award in 2011. He plans to attend physician's assistant
school following graduation.

Clark is also a volunteer with Special Olympics, Newark Food Bank,
Habitat for Humanity, A.I. duPont Children's Hospital, and March of
Dimes Relay for Life.

On the field, Clark is a former walk-on who earned four letters and was
a second-year starter at defensive end for the Blue Hens in 2012. He
started the first five games of the season before suffering a
season-ending foot injury vs. New Hampshire and finished the season with
10 tackles and recovered a fumble. For his career, he has played in 33
games with 21 starts and recorded 45 tackles. He played a key role for
the 2010 Blue Hen team that went 12-3, captured the CAA title, led the
nation in scoring defense, and advanced to the FCS national championship
game.

Clark was joined on the team by punter Marco Kano of Delaware State;
wide receivers Mark Ross of Lafayette and Ryan Spadola of Lehigh; tight
end Tyler George of Monmouth; running backs Zach Barket of Lehigh and
Greg Kessel of Lafayette; offensive linemen John Urschel of Penn State,
Patrick Ford of Eastern Kentucky, Gus Sutera of Duquesne, Bill Vogel of
Villanova, and Brad Bormann of Lafayette; kicker Eric Spillane of
Monmouth; defensive backs Andrew Sutton of Monmouth, Duron Harmon of
Rutgers, Nicholas Alfieri of Georgetown, and Davon Moore of Delaware
State; linebackers Keegan Wetzel of Navy, Brad Banas of Robert Morris,
