BELTON, Texas- In honor of their efforts both on and off the gridiron, UMHB football’s Steven Sellers and Kadarius Daniels were each selected to the National Football Foundation’s Hampshire Honor Society on Wednesday morning.
The Hampshire Honor Society “recognizes student-athletes from all divisions of college football for academic excellence through their playing careers.”
Sellers, an offensive lineman who is double majoring in economics and management, posted a 4.00 GPA and concluded his final season of college football this spring. He led the offensive line after starting the final four games of the spring campaign, and was named the ASC’s Offensive Lineman of the Year.
Daniels starred at wide receiver for the Cru, and also closed out his collegiate career this spring. An engineering major, the Pflugerville, Texas product had a 3.27 GPA. He led the team in receiving yardage (227) and touchdowns (4).
During their time in Belton, the duo played on three ASC championship teams and combined for both four ASC All-Conference and ASC Academic All-Conference honors.
“To qualify for the NFF Hampshire Honor Society, student-athletes must be starting players or significant contributors from all divisions of college football who are completing their final season of eligibility. Those players must maintain at least a 3.20 career grade point average and meet all NCAA mandated progress toward graduation. The NFF recognized a total of 910 student-athletes from 255 schools this year,” said a press release issued by the UMHB Athletics Department.
