Posted on April 15th, 2020 by

IRVING, Texas – The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) Wednesday announced the 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. Gustie seniors earning a place on this year’s team include Avery Bachman (Saint Peter), Oliver Frempong (Accra, Ghana), Kolt Gorg (Blue Earth), Jordan Grovum (Cottage Grove), Jake Krull (Plymouth), Matthew Montplaisir (Buffalo), and Brice Panning (Hamburg)

1,432 players from 364 schools qualified for membership in the Society’s 14th year. 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.

Nominated by their respective schools, members of the NFF Hampshire Honor Society must have:

  • Completed their final year of playing eligibility in 2019
  • Graduated players, who have remaining eligibility but will not return to collegiate play (e.g. declared for NFL Draft or retired from football), may also be nominated
  • Achieved a 3.2 cumulative grade point average throughout entire course of undergraduate study
