IOWA CITY — Two former University of Iowa football players have been named to the National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame’s inaugural National Honor Society. The Hawkeye honorees are Mike Elgin and Andy Fenstermaker.

The NFF National Honor Society is comprised of college football players from all divisions of play who maintained a 3.2 GPA or better. A total of 345 players from 195 schools earned recognition as part of the inaugural class.

Elgin, a starting center/guard, was a first-team member of the 2006 Academic All-America team. He is a native of Bankston, IA. Fenstermaker was Iowa’s top punter the last two years and a two-time member of the academic all-Big Ten team. He is from Mt. Pleasant, IA.

“The inaugural class of the Honor Society contains an outstanding group of young men who simply set the standard for excellence on and off the field, and we are proud to showcase their accomplishments as a powerful example of football’s unique ability to produce the next generation of great leaders,” said NFF President & CEO Steve Hatchell.
