Peters, a student at Northwest University in Seattle, Washington, USA, is one of 114 Division II Men’s Basketball student-athletes who have been named 2011 Daktronics – NAIA Scholar-athletes.

In order to be nominated by an institution’s head coach, a student-athlete must maintain a minimum grade point average of 3.5 on a 4.0 scale and must have achieved a junior academic status to qualify for this honor.

Peters, who earned the honour for the second straight year, is the son of James and Melena Peters of Belmont and is one of 11 children. Peters was also named to the All-CCC Academic team for the winter of 2010-11 earlier.

Greg just returned with his teammates from the NAIA Division II Men’s Basketball National Championships held in Branson, MO. Peters led his team in scoring, rebounding, and blocked shots as the Eagles finished with a 21-9 season record and tied for third place in the Cascade Conference.
