Schetroma Named a NFF Scholar-Athlete

SELINSGROVE, Pa. – Susquehanna senior football player Ken Schetroma (Elysburg, Pa./Southern Columbia Area) has been named a recipient of the Central Pennsylvania National Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Award.

The award honors student-athletes for their exceptional academic, athletic and community service accomplishments. Schetroma will be honored along with the other scholar-athlete award recipients at a banquet on March 17, 2013.

Schetroma, an elementary education major, is the fourth-straight SU player to receive the award, following Matt Knouse '12, Bobby Eppleman '11 and Dave Paveletz '10.

A team captain, Schetroma capped off his senior year by being named a First-Team All-Landmark Conference player. He was subsequently named to the roster for the Division III Senior All-Star Game (Tazon de Estrellas), played in Mexico on Dec. 15.

This past fall, Schetroma racked up 51 tackles (33 solo, 18 assisted), 10 tackles for loss, 1.5 sacks, one interception – the first of his collegiate career – broke up four passes and defended five more. He also forced two fumbles and recovered another.

The Crusaders finished their 2012 season with a 6-4 record, including a 5-4 mark in Centennial Conference action. The winning season marked the first time in 12 years SU put together back-to-back winning seasons.
