Romanzak is one of four NCAA Division II national champions to earn spots on the All-Academic Team.

In order for a student-athlete to be nominated to the Division II All-Academic Team, he must have a minimum 3.2 cumulative grade-point average on a 4.0 scale, with that benchmark at 3.0 for those who qualified for the 2018 NCAA Division II Wrestling Championships. The athlete must also be in at least a second full year at his school, and have competed in a minimum of six dates of competition.

With more than 300 individuals and 51 teams represented, it was the largest collective group of Division II athletes and teams ever named to the NWCA All-Academic Team.
