PAFA recognizes all PAFA tackle football players (3rd-8th grade) who earn straight As on their report card during the first quarter or trimester with an Academic All American award. This award is designed to encourage our student athletes to achieve excellence on and off the field, recognizing that being a good athlete requires focus and discipline in all areas of their life, and that while performance on the field is important, school is most important.
To receive the PAFA All American Award, students will need to submit a copy of their first quarter report card showing all As (A- counts!) to their Division Administrator—see submission deadlines below. Academic All Americans will receive a certificate and other recognition from the league at the end of the season, including recognition on the PAFA website.
You can text or email a copy of the report card to your DA, or provide a printed photocopy. Please reach out to your team mom if you need contact information for your DA.
