IRVING, Texas -
The University of North Dakota football team had four representatives of a record 838 named to the 2014 National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society on Tuesday. This year’s membership is represented by 267 schools that span all divisions of college football.

The UND senior quartet named to this year’s class includes offensive lineman Jake Hoerchner, running back Jake Miller, placekicker Zeb Miller and linebacker Brian Otto. With four players on this year’s list, North Dakota has now had 29 players named to the society, which began in 2007.

In order to gain admittance to the society, players must maintain a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better throughout their college career. "We continue to raise the bar each year for the number of student-athletes who qualify for membership in the Hampshire Honor Society," said NFF President & CEO Steve Hatchell. "The Hampshire Honor Society plays an important role in highlighting that college football players clearly play a leadership role in the classroom as well as on the playing field. We congratulate each of these young men for their commitment to excellence."

The NFF Hampshire Honor Society capitalizes on the NFF's current National Scholar-Athlete program 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 more than 700 college and universities with football programs nationwide. The initiative has honored 4,927 student-athletes since its inception, and the program has experienced growth every year in either members or school participation since its launch in 2007. The 2014 class of 838 players represents a new high water mark for members, eclipsing the old record mark by 117 student-athletes.
