Call me commissioner 

Ferris senior linebacker Nick Huckabay and Ferris junior defender Carley Dubbert were awarded the Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) Commissioners award for their respective seasons in the fall of 2017. 

The GLIAC presents the award to six male and female students who do well both on and off the field after the fall, winter and spring athletic seasons. Huckabay led the Bulldogs in tackles with 99 this season, helping the Bulldogs to the Division II Quarterfinals. Dubbert led the Bulldogs with nine goals and three assists as the Bulldogs just missed out on their first ever NCAA tournament appearance. 

Feeling good 

68 Ferris athletes were honored as GLIAC All-Academic and All-Academic Excellence team for the fall athletic season. 

Six Ferris programs were home to athletes recognized by the conference. Football, volleyball, soccer, women’s tennis and both men’s and women’s cross country teams were all host to athletes honored by the GLIAC. Ferris athletes combined for an impressive 3.19 grade point average for the fall semester.
