WINTER PARK, Fla – Virginia junior Kase Luzar earned 2002 Verizon Academic All-District second team honors for football in District III on Friday.
The Williamsburg, Va., native is the Cavaliers’ starting fullback.

Named to the ACC Honor Roll each season, Luzar is a member of the Sigma Delta Pi National Honor Society, the National Society of Collegiate Scholars, and the Phi Eta Sigma National Freshman Honor Society. He’s been named to the UVA Athletic Honor Roll every semester of his collegiate career.
District III is comprised of all Division I and I-AA schools in Florida, Georgia, North Carolina, South Carolina, and Virginia. To be eligible, a student-athlete must have a cumulative grade-point average of 3.2 and be a starter or key reserve.
