Former Youngstown defensive tackle Nick DeKraker and former Liberty wide receiver Pat Kelly were chosen as the 12th annual KP Sports Division I Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association Scholar-Athletes of the Year.

Each will receive a $5,000 postgraduate scholarship.

DeKraker, a business major who owns a 3.93 GPA, led the team with five sacks last fall. He finished with 26 total tackles, including 10 solo stops. He was named to the FCS ADA All-Star team and was a 2012 first-team All-Academic Missouri Valley Football Conference selection. After graduation, DeKraker plans to pursue an MBA.
