    Saluki Football made the most improvement in its Academic Progress Rate (APR) of any Missouri Valley Football Conference program last year, and was honored by the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association.

    The Association recognizes one institution from each conference that has improved the most from the previous year, and also recognizes one institution at each of the 13 FCS conferences that has the highest APR score. South Dakota State had the highest APR among MVFC teams.

    "Our Association is once again delighted to present these awards to spotlight the true mission of all FCS programs, embracing the academic progress of their student-athletes," said FCS ADA President Ron Strollo, executive director of athletics at Youngstown State. "We are happy to continue to recognize the FCS institutions and their football programs for continuing to reach or maintain exemplary APR scores."

    The National Collegiate Athletic Association (NCAA) member colleges and universities adopted a comprehensive academic reform package designed to improve the academic success and graduation of all student-athletes. The centerpiece of the package is the academic measurement for teams, known as the APR.

    Now in its 20th year, the Football Championship Subdivision Athletics Directors Association's mission is to enhance Football Championship Subdivision football.
