Jim Gullo Named to Academic All-District Team
Nov. 2, 2009
Air Force goalkeeper Jim Gullo has been named to the 2009 CoSIDA/ESPN the Magazine Academic All-District 7 men's soccer team. Gullo, who currently has a 3.79 cumulative GPA in biochemistry, will now go on the ballot for Academic All-America consideration. This is the first all-district selection for Gullo.
A senior from River Forest, Ill., Gullo started the first six games of the season and has appeared in seven. He has a 3-2-1 record and an impressive 1.12 goals-against average, allowing just seven goals in his seven appearances. He made a season-high seven saves in the season opener against College of Charleston and posted back-to-back shutouts against Dayton (3-0) and Army (1-0).
The district team is made up of student-athletes from Division I schools in Colorado, Iowa, Kansas, Missouri, Montana, Nebraska, North Dakota, South Dakota, Wyoming, Alberta and Saskatchewan. To be nominated, student-athletes must be a starter or important reserve, and carry a cumulative grade point average of 3.30 or higher. Team members are selected by a vote of members of the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA) within the district.
Air Force is currently 7-7-1 overall and 2-4 in the Mountain Pacific Sports Federation. The Falcons wrap up the 2009 regular season this Saturday, Nov. 7, at home against the University of Denver. Gullo will be one of seven Falcon seniors honored in a pre-game ceremony.
