WILLIAMSBURG — The College of William & Mary (W&M) announced that Tribe Football defensive end Carl Fowler was selected to the FCS Athletics Directors Association (ADA) Academic All-Star Team.

There were over 100 candidates that were considered for the ADA Academic All-Star team. Fowler was one of 50 individuals that were chosen to be a part of the group.

The group is composed of individuals who have excelled on the field, in the classroom, and in the community.

“Each year I’ve had the opportunity to review the profiles of the accomplished FCS student-athletes who have been nominated for this recognition, I’ve been humbled and encouraged by their stories and by the positive impact I expect each one will be making in their communities for years to come,” said current FCS ADA President Nicki Moore, Vice President and Director of Athletics at Colgate University. “The athletics directors of the FCS and I are so fortunate to be leaders for them and to support the powerful football experiences that have helped shape their development.”

On the field, Fowler is a two-time team captain and has been a starter since his redshirt freshman season. He has totaled 86 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss (TFL), and 6.5 sacks during his career with W&M.

Fowler is in his second year of Law School. He has earned an undergraduate degree in public policy and has graduated with over a 3.5 GPA.

He also serves as a Colonial Athletic Association (CAA) Representative for the NCAA Division I Football Oversight Committee: Student-Athlete Connection Group and he helped organize the Durham-Raleigh March Against Injustice in May 2020. The March helped raise $20,000 for the Equal Justice Initiative.

In addition to earning CoSIDA Academic All-District First Team honors last spring, he is an eight-time winner of the Colonial Athletic Association Commissioner’s Academic Award and he received W&M’s Provost Award four times. He’s made the dean list twice.

Fowler is a member of the W&M Football Leadership Council, Student-Athlete Advisory Council (SAAC), Criminal Law Society (Board Member, Advocacy Committee Member), Public Service Fund, and Students Against the Death Penalty. During his time at W&M, he has volunteered at local schools, as well as with Housing Partnerships and Be the Match Bone Marrow Drives.
