STANFORD, Calif. – Senior Conor McFadden was named to the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society, which is comprised of college football players from all divisions of play who each maintained a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better throughout their college career, as announced Tuesday by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame.

McFadden was one of 838 players from 267 schools which qualified for membership in the society’s eighth year, setting a new record for the number of members in the history of the program, which began in 2007.

The offensive center from Sunfish Lake, Minn., played two games during a 2013 season which saw the Cardinal claim a second straight Pac-12 Conference title and play in the 100th Rose Bowl Game against Michigan State.

McFadden is currently working on a United States Senate campaign for his father, Mike, a Republican candidate from Minnesota.

“We continue to raise the bar each year for the number of student-athletes who qualify for membership in the Hampshire Honor Society,” said NFF President and CEO Steve Hatchell. “The Hampshire Honor Society plays an important role in highlighting that college football players clearly play a leadership role in the classroom as well as on the playing field. We congratulate each of these young men for their commitment to excellence.”

The NFF Hampshire Honor Society capitalizes on the NFF's current National Scholar-Athlete program greatly expanding the number of scholar-athletes the NFF can recognize each year.

The program further strengthens the organization's leadership role in encouraging academic performance by the student-athletes who play football at the more than 700 college and universities with football programs nationwide. The initiative has honored 4,927 student-athletes since its inception, and the program has experienced growth every year in either members or school participation since its launch in 2007. The 2014 class of 838 players represents a new high water mark for members, eclipsing the old record mark by 117 student-athletes.

Qualifications for membership in the NFF Hampshire Honor Society include being a starter or a significant contributor in one’s last year of eligibility, achieving a 3.2 cumulative grade-point average throughout entire course of undergraduate study and meeting all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements.
