Another academic honor for Calhoun

Taveze Calhoun is hoping to hear his name called later this week in the NFL Draft.

But the former Mississippi State cornerback received recognition of a different kind after being selected to the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society on Wednesday.

To qualify for the NFF Hampshire Honor Society, a football player must maintain a cumulative 3.2 grade point average during their collegiate career.

Calhoun graduated with a 3.5 GPA and was a four-time member of the SEC Academic Honor Roll. The Morton native was the SEC’s only NFF National Scholar Athlete last year and was a finalist for the Campbell Trophy, also known as the ‘Academic Heisman’.

Calhoun concluded his career with the Bulldogs after appearing in 50 games including 36 starts. The 6-foot-1, 180-pounder made 161 tackles, 12 for loss, six interceptions, forced three fumbles and recovered a fumble.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
