Two Receive Football Honor Society Recognition
Posted: Thursday, April 10, 2008
DALLAS, Texas - UW-Eau Claire football players Tony Hull (Sr. -Blaine, Minn./Spring Lake Park) and Marc Davis (Sr. -Duluth, Minn./Marshall) have been named to the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame's (NFF) 2008 NFF Hampshire Honor Society, the NFF recently announced.
The honor society is comprised of college football players from all divisions of play who each maintained a 3.2 cumulative GPA or better. A total of 439 players from 226 schools qualified for membership in the society's second year, an increase of more than 25 percent from the inaugural class in 2007. The two Blugolds were the only representatives from the Wisconsin Intercollegiate Athletic Conference (WIAC) to make the list. The only other honoree from the UW System was the Wisconsin Badgers' wide receiver Luke Swan.
Hull, a wide receiver for the Blugolds, has already received a number of different honors for his efforts in 2007. He was named the team's Offensive MVP and received first team All-WIAC honors as an all-purpose player. Hull was also recognized as one of 153 semifinalists for the 2007 Draddy Trophy and a candidate for the National NFF 2007 National Scholar-Athlete Awards early in the 2007 football campaign. Hull started 11 games this season, 10 at wide receiver and one at quarterback. He led the team with 40 catches for 628 yards (15.7 yards per catch) and had four touchdowns. He also added 104 rushing yards and 118 kick return yards for 850 all-purpose yards. Hull ended his career as a Blugold fifth on the team's all-time receiving list with 2,066 yards.
Davis, an offensive lineman for the Blugolds, started all 12 games this season. Near the end of the season he was named to the WIAC's inaugural All-Sportsmanship Team.
