DENTON – North Texas football student-athlete Cyril Lemon received the Conference USA Fall Spirt of Service award. The senior was one of 14 student-athletes across the league to be recognized with this honor.

The C-USA Spirit of Service Award is designed to recognize the community service efforts of the league's student-athletes, based upon significant community service, good academic standing and participation in their elected sport. The Spirit of Service award is presented three times throughout the season, with today's honorees representing Conference USA's fall sports: football, soccer, volleyball and cross country.

Cyril Lemon has anchored the North Texas offensive line for four seasons, garnering four all-conference nods and a mention on the Lombardi Watch List in 2014.

In addition to his dominance on the field for the Mean Green, the senior from Marble Falls, Texas, has been active in the DFW community. Lemon has worked with Denton Fight Hunger, Our Daily Bread Soup Kitchen, the "Let's SAAC Hunger" food drive, Salvation Army, WFAA Santa's Helpers Food Bank, the North Texas Food Bank and participated in the Special Abilities of North Texas 5K Color Run.

Lemon has been just as outstanding in the classroom, where he completed his bachelor's in kinesiology with a 3.42 in three and a half years. He was named to the 2014 C-USA All-Academic football team following the 2014 season.
