Scott Leech NFF Irving, Texas - April 30, 2014 - Springfield College offensive lineman Scott Leech (Lincoln, R.I.) was recently selected to the 2014 National Football Foundations and College Hall of Fame (NFF) Hampshire Honor Society after his hard work and dedication both on and off the field.

Leech, who has recorded a 3.75 GPA to date while concentrating on his major of Applied Exercise Science, helped lead the offense to an incredible average of 300.3 rushing yards per game.

The NFF Hampshire Honor Society 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. A total of 838 players from 267 schools 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.

"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 & CEOSteve 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."

Qualifications for membership in the NFF Hampshire Honor Society include being a starter or a significant contributor in one's last year of eligibility (or a senior who has declared for the NFL Draft) at an NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, Football Championship Subdivision, Division II, Division III or an NAIA college or university, achieving a 3.2 cumulative grade point average throughout entire course of undergraduate study, and meeting all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements.

Earlier this year, Leech was also named CoSIDA Academic All-District I as voted upon by the College Sports Information Directors of America.

In order to qualify for CoSIDA All-Academic status, one must be an upper classman and have a GPA of 3.30 or above. This marks the second-straight season that Leech has earned this academic honor.
