Valparaiso University had 46 members of its football program named to the Pioneer Football League’s Academic Honor Roll for the Fall, 2008 semester.

The Crusaders were one of six schools in the league that had 40 or more student-athletes named to the honor roll.

The PFL athletic directors and coaches established the honor roll as a way to recognize the league’s outstanding student-athletes.  The academic honor roll consists of student-athletes who have participated in football at a member institution during the fall semester and posted a 3.0 grade-point average or higher while enrolled in classes full time.

The following represent Valpo’s members of the PFL Honor Roll:
