Sacramento State’s Jonathan Bade has been named to the Big Sky Conference 2017 Fall All-Academic team for football. The 2013 American Canyon High graduate, who is majoring in sociology, was named to the All-Big Sky Conference third team last fall. A senior and a three-year starter, he was a two-year captain and started the final 33 games at tackle for the Hornets (7-4, 6-2 Big Sky).
He played a large role in the team’s improved play up front as the Hornets rushed for 225.8 yards per game and allowed just 16 sacks in 11 games. The rushing average was the most by a Sacramento State team since 1999 when it ran for 234.9 yards per game
