Cole Chewins Named to CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team
Chewins is now eligible to earn Academic All-America honors.
EAST LANSING, Mich. – Michigan State third-year sophomore offensive tackle Cole Chewins has been named to the Academic All-District 5 First Team, as selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA). Chewins, who owns a 3.91 grade-point average as a finance major, is now eligible to earn Academic All-America honors.
Chewins has started all 10 games at left tackle this season for the Spartans, who are ranked No. 17 in the latest College Football Playoff Top 25 and own a 7-3 overall record (5-2 Big Ten). He earned his first letter in 2016 and has started 13 consecutive games at left tackle, tied for the third-longest starts streak on the team.
A former walk-on, Chewins earned a scholarship in January 2016 following his redshirt season in 2015. He is one of 15 players on the team’s Eagles leadership council this fall.
The Clarkston, Michigan, native earned Academic All-Big Ten honors in 2016 and will likely earn that same distinction for the second consecutive year following the regular season.
No. 17 Michigan State (7-3, 5-2) returns to action Saturday, Nov. 18 to face Maryland (4-6, 2-5) at 4 p.m. in Spartan Stadium.
