Dozen Beacons Named to NFF Hampshire Honor Society

A dozen members of the Valparaiso University football program have earned National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society membership for their performance in the classroom.

Redshirt senior linebacker Evan Annis (Hilliard, Ohio / Hilliard Davidson), redshirt senior defensive back Austin Chilton (Windermere, Fla. / West Orange), sixth-year defensive back Ousmane Dabo (Columbus, Ohio / Westland [Eastern Kentucky]), senior offensive lineman Tyler Eberhart (Barberton, Ohio / Barberton), redshirt junior defensive lineman Sam Hafner (Green Bay, Wis. / De Pere), sixth-year senior quarterback Jeffrey Jackson (San Diego, Calif. / Bishop’s [San Diego]), senior defensive back Garner Jones (Brentwood, Tenn. / Brentwood), senior defensive lineman Kurt Kessen (Shelby Township, Mich. / Utica), senior wide receiver Cam Livingston (Leo, Ind. / Leo), sixth-year senior punter Evan Matthes (Reston, Va. / South Lakes [West Virginia]), senior defensive lineman Trent Miller (Gibsonia, Pa. / Pine-Richland) and senior offensive lineman Carter Woody (Fort Mill, S.C. / Charlotte Catholic) qualified for membership in the Society, which recognizes seniors who own a cumulative grade point average of 3.2 or above.

 

This continues a successful year of academic achievement for the Valpo football program. Annis became the first player in program history to be named the Pioneer Football League Scholar-Athlete of the Year, leading a group of six Beacons named to the Academic All-PFL teams including five on the first team, tied for the league lead. In addition, Valpo matched a program record by placing 64 individuals on the PFL Academic Honor Roll.
