Valparaiso University’s Adam Rundh (Aalborg, Denmark/Orjanskolan H.S. [Sweden]) is among the 55 members named to the 12th annual Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association (FCS ADA) Academic All-Star Team.
For Rundh, it is yet another academic honor in addition to being named a ESPN The Magazine First Team Academic All-America selection this year after being a Second Team selection a year ago. He is also a three-time Academic All-District V pick.
The senior defensive lineman tallied 36 tackles in 2009, including seven for loss. He had 3.5 quarterback sacks, two pass break-ups, and three other quarterback hurries. He also blocked an extra point attempt in the season finale against Morehead State.

A two-time Honorable Mention All-Pioneer Football League selection, Rundh has been voted to the Pioneer Football League All-Academic Team twice as well. An international business and finance double major, he carries a 3.94 cumulative grade point average.
Nominees for the FCS ADA Academic All-Star Team had to have a minimum 3.20 grade point average as well as a starter or key reserve.
