Eldrenkamp is named to the all-academic team for the third time; it's Lindquist's second selection.
Washington’s Ben Burr-Kirven, Jake Eldrenkamp and Jeff Lindquist were named Wednesday to the Pac-12’s all-academic first team, three of the 16 players recognized for their academics by the conference.
Eldrenkamp, a senior from Medina, Wash., is the only three-time, first-team All-Academic selection on the team this season. An offensive lineman who graduated cum laude with a finance degree from the Foster School of Business, he was also named Academic All-District 8 and was a first-team All-Pac-12 offensive lineman.
Lindquist is a two-time Pac-12 Academic honoree, having earned a spot on the team last year. The former quarterback turned tight end from Mercer Island is also a Foster School grad who boasts a 3.50 grade-point average.
Burr-Kirven, a sophomore from Menlo Park, Calif., is a linebacker and top special teams performer who was also a member of the All-District 8 team this year. He carries a 3.71 GPA as a pre-arts and sciences major.
