Recent Case Western Reserve University graduate and former men’s tennis player C.J. Krimbill was selected to receive the NCAA Today’s Top 10 Award, recognizing former student-athletes for their successes on the field, in the classroom and in the community. The 10 recipients, selected from all three NCAA divisions, completed their athletics eligibility during the 2015-16 academic year and will be recognized at the Honors Celebration during the NCAA Convention, which will be held in Nashville, Tennessee, in January.
Krimbill becomes the first athlete in Case Western Reserve University history to win the honor, one of the most prestigious awards combining athletics, academics and community service that can be presented to an NCAA athlete. The NCAA Today’s Top 10 Award has been presented annually since 1973, with past winners including numerous student-athletes that would go on to become household names, such as Archie Griffin, John Elway, Steve Young, Cheryl Miller, David Robinson and Drew Brees, among others.
