Lesuma, Mullennix Named to Hampshire Honor Society

April 29, 2009

PULLMAN - Washington State University's Vaughn Lesuma and Matt Mullennix were each named members of the 2009 National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame Hampshire Honor Society, the organization announced recently.

The Honor Society is comprised of college football players from all divisions that maintained a 3.2 grade-point-average or better, and started or were significant contributors in their final year of eligibility. Honor Society members must also meet all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements.

Lesuma appeared in 11 of WSU's 13 games in 2008, starting 10 games at left tackle and once at left guard.

After being granted a sixth year of eligibility by the NCAA, Mullennix started each of WSU's 13 games, 12 at defensive end and one at defensive tackle. He accumulated a career-high 50 tackles on the season, including four tackles-for-loss and 1.5 sacks.

There were 564 student-athletes from 266 schools honored in 2009, a 27-percent increase from the 2008 class. In its inaugural year in 2007, the Hampshire Honor Society honored more than 300 students from 195 schools.

Last year WSU's Romeen Abdollmohammadi, Alex Brink, Jed Collins and Mullennix were each named members of the Honor Society.
