Five Valparaiso University football players that just graduated this past season were among the 564 total players selected nationwide as members of the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) Hampshire Honor Society.

Ryan Koepke (Fort Wayne, Ind./Homestead H.S.), Tim Kratz (Macomb, Mich./Lutheran North H.S.), Ryan Kozey (Waterford, Wis./Union H.S.), Tom Oswald (Cary, Ill./Cary-Grove H.S.), and Matt Watkins (Mason, Ohio/Mason H.S.) were all selected in the society’s third year of existence.

Qualifications to be considered for membership in the NFF National Honor Society include being a starter or a significant substitute in one’s last year of eligibility, achieving a 3.2 cumulative grade point average through undergraduate study, and meeting all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements.

The five join Justin Wiler from the class of 2008 as the only Crusaders to have ever been selected for the honor.
