These Bowl-Bound Aztecs Mean Business
For the first time in SDSU history, the Aztecs football team will attend its third consecutive bowl game. This year, the Aztecs will play Brigham Young University in the Poinsettia Bowl on Thursday, December 20, 2012 in San Diego's Qualcomm Stadium.
Thirteen of the players who helped the Aztecs get there are business students. They are Dylan Denso, Seamus McMorrow, Dwayne Garrett, Jacob Driver, Rob Andrews, Tony Bell, Kevin Campano, Hunter Christensen, Christopher Hokokian, Chad Jeffries, Brandon Koletsky, Jordan Smith, and Alec Johnson.
SDSU senior and management major Denso is a wide receiver who played in every game both last year and this year, except for one when he was injured. He is a third generation Aztec and both parents earned their degrees from SDSU. He is has been recognized as an SDSU scholar-athlete in 2011 and 2012.
Starting center Johnson shines not only on the field but also in the classroom. Johnson, a marketing major, has been named an SDSU scholar-athlete two years in a row and was named to the All-Mountain West Second Team following the 2011 season.
Driver, a linebacker and special teams player, will be completing his degree in finance from SDSU. His best game in the 2012 season came against Army when he had four tackles, three of which were unassisted.
Management senior Andrews is the only linebacker on the Aztecs squad who began the 2012 season with starting experience. Andrews had an outstanding performance in the Aztec's upset victory over 19th-ranked Boise State this year by stopping the Broncos in two crucial drives in the fourth quarter.
The College of Business Administration enthusiastically supports all student athletes as they pursue excellence both in their sport and in the classroom.
