WASHINGTON DC- KG Dean Ferguson has been named Virginia Tech’s representative in the 3M STEM Scholar-Athlete Military Bowl program, as announced Thursday by the Military Bowl and 3M.

The 3M STEM Scholar-Athlete Military Bowl program honors one football player from each member university of the ACC and the American Athletic Conference – the two conferences represented in the Military Bowl college football game. These players are studying STEM subjects (science, technology, engineering, mathematics) and/or aspire to STEM careers.

“What an incredible collection of student-athletes, who demonstrate their leadership on the court and in the classroom while tackling tough topics that prepare them for the future,” said Steve Beck, President and Executive Director of Military Bowl. “We are thrilled to honor these student-athletes for their dedication and achievement.”

“3M is thrilled to recognize these outstanding students pursuing studies in STEM-related fields,” said Skip Driessen, 3M Director of Government Markets. “We know how hard these scholar-athletes have worked on the field and in the classroom and look forward to their continued success.”

Ferguson (6-2, 228) played five games in 2021 before undergoing season-ending surgery. The Sterling, Va. native wore the No. 25 jersey for the second time in his career against Richmond on September 25. Ferguson majored in civil engineering at Tech.
