NOTRE DAME, Ind. – Members of the 2007-08 University of Notre Dame football team combined to post a semester grade-point average above 3.0 during the ’08 spring semester, marking the sixth straight semester (and the first six times in recorded history) that the Irish football team has topped the 3.0 GPA level as a group.
Fifty-four of the 104 players registered at least a 3.0 mark for the ’08 spring semester and 53 members of the team currently have a cumulative GPA of at least a 3.0.
“I want to congratulate our players for another solid semester in the classroom,” Irish head coach Charlie Weis said. “I’m very proud and pleased of all the players who have helped contribute to six consecutive semesters of the team GPA being at least 3.0. I also would like to thank the wonderful job our academic services department does and commend them for all the effort they put forth working with our team.”
