The Great Lakes Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (GLIAC) announced the recipients of the winter 2008 GLIAC Commissioner’s Awards. The awards, sponsored by Meijer Incorporated, are presented after the fall, winter and spring athletic seasons to six male and six female student-athletes who excel both in the classroom and on the fields of play.

Northern Michigan University’s Tyler Kazmierkoski was one of the six male student-athletes selected for the winter 2008 Commissioner’s Award.

Kazmierkoski, a starting guard on the NMU basketball team, is also a social studies and secondary education major who has maintained a 3.85 GPA during his collegiate career.

For the 2007-08 basketball season, Kazmierkoski averaged 13 points per game, grabbed a team- high 124 rebounds (4.6 per game) and led the team with 69 three-pointers made. He was seventh in the GLIAC last season with three-point field goals and an average of 2.56 per game.
