DALLAS, Texas - The National Football Foundation and the College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced Thursday the members of the 2013 NFF Hampshire Honor Society and Fresno State graduating seniors Shawn Plummer and Andrew Shapiro made the list.
To be eligible for the NFF Hampshire Honor Society, college football players must be a starter or significant contributor in their last year of eligibility, have a cumulative grade point average above 3.2 and meet all NCAA-mandated progress towards their degree requirements and graduation.
Both Plummer, an outside linebacker, and Shapiro, a punter, were also named to the 2012 Mountain West Academic All-Conference team. The duo helped lead Fresno State to a 9-4 record during their senior seasons and the Mountain West title.
The two are also among a group of six former Bulldogs that are attending rookie mini camps with NFL teams.
Shapiro signed an undrafted free agent contract with the Houston Texans and will attend its mini camp, May 10-12.
Plummer was invited to the Atlanta Falcons rookie mini camp that runs May 3-5.
A total of 703 players from 259 schools across all divisions of play qualified for membership in the society's seventh year, marking the highest school participant in the history of the program, which began in 2007.
