Huneke is named to National Football Foundation
Sabetha alumnus Levi Huneke was one of three Ottawa Braves football players named to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame (NFF).
The NFF 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. A total of 1,091 players from 298 schools qualified for membership in the society’s 11th year, both new single-year records in the history of the program.
The NFF Hampshire Honor Society capitalized 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 who play football at the 77 colleges and universities with football programs nationwide.
The 1,091 players honored in 2017 sets a new high water mark, eclipsing the previous record of 882 honorees in 2016. The 298 schools with members breaks the previous record of 280 in both 2015 and 2016.
