UNIVERSITY AT BUFFALO ATHLETICS


BUFFALO -- University at Buffalo seniors Kyle DeWeen and Tim Roberts have been named to the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society – comprised of college football players who maintained a cumulative 3.2 or better grade point average throughout their college career. It is the seventh straight year a UB player has made the list.
DeWeen is a business administration major with a 3.64 grade point average. DeWeen was the Bulls starting punter in 2017 and averaged 40.6 yards per punt. The Niagara Falls native finished his two-year career with the Bulls as the program record holder for career punt average (40.1). DeWeen was also a 2017 Academic All-MAC selection.
Roberts is a social science interdisciplinary major with a 3.68 grade point average. The senior safety ranked sixth on the team in tackles with 62. He also had a tackle for loss, an interception and a forced fumble on the year. The Hahnville, LA native was also a 2017 Academic All-District, Academic All-MAC and MAC Distinguished Scholar Athlete selection.
The National Football Foundation honored 1,251 players in 2018 - a new high water mark, eclipsing the previous record of 1,103 honorees in 2017. The 303 schools with members is also a new high. The initiative has now honored 8,994 student-athletes since its inception, and the program has experienced growth every year in either members or school participation since its launch in 2007.
