Outgoing Murray State football seniors Toby Omli and Mitch Stults were named as members of the 2017 Hampshire Honor Society, the National Football Foundation announced Wednesday.
The NFF Hampshire Honor Society is comprised of college football players from all divisions who each maintained a cumulative 3.2 grade-point average or better throughout their college careers. A total of 1,089 players from 297 schools qualified for membership in the society's 11th year, a single-year record in the history of the program.
To be eligible for the Hampshire Honor Society, a student-athlete must be a starter or a significant contributor in one's last year of eligibility -- or a senior who has declared for the NFL Draft -- at an NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, Football Championship Subdivision, Division II, Division III or an NAIA college or university. They must also achieve a 3.2 GPA throughout their entire course of undergraduate study and meet all NCAA/NAIA-mandated progress toward degree requirements.
