Seven Bobcats Earn NFF Hampshire Honors
The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced on April 15 members of the 2020 NFF Hampshire Honor Society, which is comprised of college football players from all divisions of play who each maintained a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better throughout their college careers. An impressive 1,432 players from 364 schools qualified for membership in the Society’s 14th year.
Seven members of the Peru State football team were included on the list. The seniors recognized were Dwight Butler (Rabun Gap, Ga.), Luis Constantino (Varzea Grande, Brazil), Noah Kasbohm (Nebraska City), Mitchell Orr (Smithville, Mo.), Austin Rosas (Red Bluff, Calif.), Cameron Schlender (Kearney), and Tylor Watts (Ridgecrest, Calif.).
“We are pleased to honor another impressive group of athletes as part of this year’s Hampshire Honor Society,” said NFF President & CEO Steve Hatchell. “For more than a decade, the Hampshire Honor Society has served as a powerful vehicle for schools to recognize their college football players who have distinguished themselves both academically and athletically, and we congratulate the schools and each of these young men for their commitment to excellence in all aspects of their lives.” The NFF Hampshire Honor Society capitalizes on the NFF’s National Scholar-Athlete program by greatly expanding the number of scholar-athletes the NFF can recognize each year. The program further strengthens the organization’s leadership role in encouraging academic performance by the student-athletes at the 775 colleges and universities with football programs nationwide. The initiative has now honored 12,127 student-athletes since its inception.
