Everson Named to NFF National Honor Society

Everson Named to NFF National Honor Society

April 25, 2007

ATHENS, Ohio - Senior quarterback Austen Everson (Brentwood, Tenn.) has been named to the inaugural class of the National Football Foundation National Honor Society. Everson completed his career with the Bobcats in 2006, helping the team to its first MAC East Division championship and its first bowl appearance since 1968.

In order to be selected for the NFF's National Honor Society, a player must be a starter or a significant substitute in their last year of eligibility at an accredited NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision, Football Championship Subdivision, Division II, Division III, or an NAIA college or university; have a 3.2 cumulative grade point average throughout their entire course of undergraduate study; and meet all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements.

Everson, a two-time Academic All-MAC selection, was a semifinalist for the 2006 Draddy Trophy, an award presented by the NFF to the top football playing scholar in the nation. He will graduate from Ohio following the spring quarter with a degree in management and strategic leadership.

On the field, Everson started 13 of Ohio's 14 games in 2006 and set single-season career highs with 137 completions, 1,356 yards, seven touchdowns and a 54.2 completion percentage. He was also second on the squad in rushing with a career-high 357 yards. Everson was named the MAC East Division Co-Offensive Player of the Week after his career-best passing performance at Northern Illinois where he completed 23-of-31 passes for 322 yards and three touchdowns against the Huskies. It was the first 300-yard passing game by a Bobcat since 1993.

Everson finished his career ranked among Ohio's all-time top 10 in passing yards (4th - 3,586), passing touchdowns (t-6th - 18), pass completions (5th- 305) and total offense (6th - 4,372).

Everson was one of 11 MAC players to be named to the first class of the NFF's National Honor Society. The Bobcats were one of five league schools represented on the list that included a total of 345 student-athletes from all levels of college football.

The Ohio football team begins preparations for the 2007 season on Aug. 5, and the Bobcats will begin defense of their MAC East Division championship on Saturday, Sept. 1 at Peden Stadium versus Gardner-Webb.
