"This is a great honor for them, the college as well as our program," said Lynchburg College head men's basketball coach Hilliary Scott. "These young men are great ambassadors for Lynchburg College and they exemplify what Division III athletics is all about. I couldn't be more proud of them and what they have been able to accomplish on and off the court!"
All four student-athletes are juniors: Boysaw is an accounting major, Connor majors in business administration, Kaiser is a health and physical education major and Glover is a sport management major.
