Wayne State University offensive lineman and Mike Ilitch School of Business student-athlete Lane Potter (M.B.A.) was voted to the CoSIDA (College Sports Information Directors of America) Academic All-America First Team as announced by the organization earlier this month.

Potter’s selection marks the third consecutive year that WSU has had a First Team CoSIDA Academic All-American. Potter also becomes the first Warrior offensive lineman in program history to receive Academic All-America accolades from CoSIDA.

Potter, who earned a bachelor’s in global supply chain management in December 2020 (three-and-a-half years), is currently pursuing his M.B.A. He has been named to the Athletic Director’s Honor Roll (term GPA 3.5+) all eight semesters, including one 4.0 term. On the gridiron, Potter has started all 33 games (11 at RT in 2017, 11 at RG in 2018, 11 at LG in 2019) in his collegiate career. WSU’s Offensive Rookie of the Year for 2017, he was voted to the All-GLIAC (Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference) Second Team in 2019. The 2020-21 GLIAC Pat Riepma Postgraduate Scholarship recipient, Potter was Wayne State’s nominee for the National Football Foundation’s William V.
