These All-American athletes are selected by the Golf Coaches Association of America and must meet a rigorous standard to be selected. To be eligible for Cleveland Golf/Srixon All-American Scholar status, an individual must currently be a junior or senior academically, compete at least three full years at the collegiate level, participate in 50 percent of his team’s competitive rounds, have a stroke-average under 76.0 and maintain a minimum cumulative grade point average of 3.2.

Aside from excelling in skill and education, the GCAA also requires that scholars “be of high moral character” and also in good standing at his college or university.

Archibald, a junior majoring in finance, kept a 3.72 GPA this past season while meeting all other requirements. His teammates Hammer and Rodgers also made the cut while maintaining 3.39 and 3.28 GPAs respectively. Hammer is studying finance, and Rodgers is majoring in marketing management.
