MacMurray College football player, Dan Routh has been recognized by the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame for his academic achievements.
Routh is a graduating senior this year majoring in biology. He is the son of Ronald And Anita Routh of Edlestein, IL.
Routh joins the NFF Hampshire Honor Society for maintaining a cumulative 3.2 GPA during his college career as a student-athlete at MacMurray. The society is composed of football players from all divisions and currently recognizes its 7th year as 703 players from 259 schools were honored.
“Dan is the epitome of what every coach would want in his program -- hard working, detailed oriented and cares about his teammates,” said head football coach Chris Douglas. “These characteristics are why Dan is successful on the field and in the class.”
In order to be a member of the NFF Hampshire Honor Society, a student-athlete must be a starter or substitute in one’s last year of eligibility, maintain a 3.2 cumulative average throughout one’s college career, and meet all NCAA-mandated progress toward graduation requirements.
