The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced their members of the 2020 NFF Hampshire Honor Society on Wednesday. Pac-12 football players were well represented in this year’s membership. The list is comprised of college football players from every division of college football. Players had to maintain a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better throughout their college career.

An impressive 1,454 players from 366 schools qualified for membership in the 14th year of the Honor Society.

As stated earlier, the Pac-12 Conference had a solid list of scholar-athletes. The Pac-12 Conference should be proud of the number of players on the list and having 11 out of the 12 schools represented.

College football players are admired and worshiped for what they do on the field. Every so often, these same players need to be commended for what they do inside the classroom. Most of these players won’t crack an NFL roster, so having that college degree will help them later down the line.

Congratulations to the players who made this list and showing the focus it takes to play college football and to maintain their studies.
