Two Trojans Named as Members of the 2023 NFF Hampshire Honor Society

The National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF) announced this week the members of the 2023 NFF Hampshire Honor Society, with two Trojans named as members.

Membership is for college football players from all divisions of the NCAA, NAIA, and sprint football who each maintained a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better throughout their college careers.

A group of 1,734 players from 328 schools qualified for membership in 2023, setting a record for the number of members in a single year during the program’s 17-year history.

The two Dakota State football players to be named to 2023 NFF Hampshire Honor Society Membership were Travis Rebstock and Max Sonne.

Nominated by their respective schools, members of the NFF Hampshire Honor Society must be either a senior player, who will graduate this spring/summer, and just completed his final year of playing eligibility in 2022, or a graduated player, who has been out of high school at least three years and must have attained a minimum undergraduate cumulative GPA of 3.2 and been starters or significant contributors throughout the 2022 season.

Rebstock and Sonne each were named to the 2022 NSAA Fall Sports Scholar-Athlete.  

Rebstock was nominated for the Good Works Team award last fall. He was also one of the four NAIA football athletes that were listed on the 2022 William V. Campbell Trophy semifinalist.  

Sonne earned the 2020 Daktronics-NAIA Football Scholar Athlete distinction. 

More than 50 NAIA football athletes were listed on the 2023 NFF Hampshire Honor Society Membership list.
