NFF Hampshire Honor Society recognizes MIAC student-athletes


IRVING, Tex. – The National Football Foundation (NFF) and College Football Hall of Fame announced the members of the 2019 NFF Hampshire Honor Society on Wednesday, which is comprised of college football players from all divisions of play who each maintained a cumulative 3.2 grade-point average (GPA) or better throughout their college careers.

An all-time high 1,643 players from a record 424 schools – including 62 student-athletes from five Minnesota Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (MIAC) programs – qualified for membership in the society's 13th year.

To qualify, student-athletes must be either a starter or a significant substitute in one's last year of eligibility, maintain a 3.2 cumulative GPA, and meet all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements.

Saint John's led all schools from all divisions with 20 honorees in 2019, the most ever by a D-III institution and second-most all-time in all divisions. Only Yale University has ever had more in a single season, recording 22 honorees last year.

The MIAC honorees are listed below in alphabetical order by institution.
