The Indianapolis Colts, along with the IHSAA, will honor senior Brian Ball with 27 other Hoosier student-athletes as their 2014 Indiana Academic All-Stars.
Ball is a part of an elite group. “These young men have maintained a very high standard of excellence that at times may go unnoticed. They are wonderful ambassadors of the many families they represent,” said Mike Prior, Indianapolis a Colts Youth Football Commissioner, in a press release.

Among the 28 students athletes, 17 are their high school valedictorians, and 7 are salutatorians.

“It’s an honor, it’s nice to be rewarded for all of the hard work in the off season,” said Ball.
The All-Stars will be honored in a ceremony Sunday, Dec. 14, and recognized before the kick off of the Colts-Texans game, scheduled at 1 pm this Sunday.
