    "The growing number of schools involved in the Hampshire Honor Society each yearshows that football student-athletes not only play at the highest level butthat they are some of the best students on campus as well," said NFF President & CEO Steve Hatchell. "Congratulations to each of these young men for their commitment to education and their leadership on and off the football field."

    All four players were part of the first team in Rutgers’ history to earn a share of the BIG EAST Championship. Harmon was a third round NFL draft selection of the New England Patriots while Jones signed a NFL free agent contract with the Patriots.
