Grand Forks, N.D. - Incoming football player Luke Stanley (Menomonie, Wis.) will be honored Saturday at the University of Wisconsin's Spring Football Game after he was named the National Football Foundation-Wisconsin Chapter Scholar Athlete for 2014.

Stanley will receive a $1,000 scholarship and be recognized along with 10 other members of the scholar-athlete team at Camp Randall Stadium.

"This is a great honor for Luke and we are excited to have this well-rounded young man join our football program in the fall," UND head coach Bubba Schweigert said. "He comes from a high school program in Menomonie that emphasizes putting in hard work both in the classroom and on the football field like we do here."

Stanley is coming off his final prep season where he earned Associated Press and Wisconsin Football Coaches Association all-state first team honors as a tight end. He caught 27 passes for 638 yards and nine touchdowns for Menomonie High School.

Schweigert plans to use the 6-foot-4 Stanley at wide receiver upon his arrival this fall.
