NEW YORK - Columbia senior football captain Bob Hauschildt has been named to the Capital One Academic All-District first team, it was announced Thursday.

Named a semifinalist for the 2011 National Football Foundation National Scholar-Athlete Award, the Campbell Trophy, earlier this season, Hauschildt has been a stalwart at center for the Lions in 2011. He is a two-year starter along the Columbia offensive line.

Last year, Hauschildt was awarded the Class of 1913 Football Cup, awarded annually to the member of the Columbia football squad, in his junior or senior season, who achieves the best scholastic average.  Hauschildt is a two-year starter on the Lions' offensive line and was chosen as one of four captains prior to the start of the 2011 campaign.

Hauschildt currently sports a 3.83 grade point average and is on track to graduate from Columbia College in May 2012 with a bachelor's degree in economics and political science.
