DP's All-Academic Team: 2013

baseball-brainWe spend much of our time chasing physical tools, but as we do each year, DP wants to honor student-athletes that take care of buisness in the classroom too. Thank you to each high school coach that nominated his players with a premium GPA, SAT/ACT and class rank.
