OGDEN, Utah - Offensive lineman Christian Schneider was named UC Davis’ Scholar-Athlete Award recipient when Big Sky officials announced their conference-wide selections for the 2016-17 academic year.

Schneider, was a mainstay on the offensive line throughout his four seasons as an Aggie, and started 40 of 41 games throughout his career — including all 12 played as a true freshman.
