Dratnol named to Capital One Academic All-District team

By on November 15, 2012

ROCK ISLAND, Ill.—Kaneland alum Eric Dratnol was one of two Augustana football players named to the first team of the Capital One Academic All-District team. The junior center earned the honors in District Seven, which includes Illinois, Indiana and Ohio.

The team is selected by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

He will now be advanced to the national ballot, where he will attempt to add to Augustana’s prodigious total of Academic All-Americans. Since the AAA program began in 1951, Augustana has produced 139 honorees, which places the Vikings sixth all-time. Augustana is currently second among NCAA Division III institutions.

Dratnol has been a season-long starter at center and is considered a primary reason why the Augustana rushing attack came to life this year. He is an accounting and applied math major with a 3.83 grade point average. He is the son of David and Phyllis Dratnol of Montgomery.
