INDIANAPOLIS, Ind. – Recent Ball State graduate Tommy Rouse of the men’s volleyball team is among 58 student-athletes to receive NCAA postgraduate scholarships following the spring athletic season. Created in 1964, NCAA Postgraduate Scholarships promote and encourage education by rewarding the NCAA’s most accomplished student-athletes.

To be eligible, student-athletes must excel academically and athletically, be in their final year of eligibility and plan to pursue graduate study. Student-athletes must also maintain at least a 3.20 grade-point average and be nominated by their institution’s faculty athletics representative.

Rouse was a two-time member of the All-MIVA First Team and earned four Academic All-MIVA honors. He was named MIVA Defensive Player of the Week twice during his career and in 2013 helped pace the Cardinals to a nation-best 10.74 digs per set average. Rouse ended the season third in Division I-II in digs per set with a 2.92 average.

The Cardinals finished the 2013 season with a 21-6 overall record and a 9-5 mark in conference play. In addition, four student-athletes made it to the All-MIVA First Team and one to the All-MIVA Second Team.

Rouse will continue his academic career in dentistry school. Ball State Athletics would like to congratulate Tommy on this distinct honor.
