IRVING, Texas – Three 2013 graduates of the Colorado State football program - Tanner Hedstrom, Chris Nwoke and Weston Richburg - were recognized on Tuesday when the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced its class for the NFF Hampshire Honor Society.
The NFF Hampshire Honor Society recognizes players from all divisions of play who each maintained a cumulative 3.2 grade-point average or better throughout their college career, while being significant contributors to their team.
Hedstrom, a health and exercise major, graduated in three years before beginning a master’s program his senior year. The native of Fort Collins, Colo., didn’t record an errant snap in four seasons. Hedstrom was a four-time academic all-conference honoree and earned a spot in the Medal of Honor Bowl, a postseason all-star event.
Nwoke, a running back that majored in business administration before embarking on a post-grad tourism management degree, was a three-time All-Mountain West honoree and rushed for 1,130 yards in 2011, the 11th-most in a single season by a CSU back.
Richburg, an animal science undergrad and education and human resource studies post-graduate, started a school-record 50 consecutive games from 2010-2013. The native of Bushland, Texas, a three-time All-Mountain West honoree, earned invites to the Senior Bowl, the most prolific postseason all-star event and the NFL Draft Combine. Richburg is expected to be drafted in the first two days of the 2014 NFL Draft.
The 2013 NFF Hampshire Honor Society class of 2014 includes 838 student-athletes from 267 schools, setting a new record for the number of members in the history of the program, which began in 2007.
The last Ram to earn this honor was offensive lineman Jake Gdowski in 2012.
In total, 19 Mountain West athletes were honored on Tuesday.
