Additionally, 72 other college football players from the Grinold/Eastern Massachusetts Chapter footprint qualified for inclusion. The complete list of players from colleges and universities within the Chapter footprint is available here.

Twenty-six high school football players representing 18 different schools from within the Jack Grinold/Eastern Massachusetts Chapter area have been named to the 2022 Chapter Scholar-Athlete Class. 

The award is presented to those graduating seniors in the Chapter footprint who have achieved excellence on the gridiron, in the classroom, and in the community. All three criteria are weighed equally in the selection process.

"These 26 young men have persevered through an unimaginable two years," said Chapter Executive Director Jim Seavey. "With the COVID pandemic there was no guarantee they would even have football seasons, yet they remained steadfast in their resolve to play football and still managed to contribute to their schools and communities in positive ways. They have each brought great distinction to their schools, families and communities.” 

​The awards will be presented at the 2022 Scholar-Athlete Banquet scheduled for Sunday, May 15, 2022 at the Boston-Newton Marriott. Further information and tickets to the banquet are available here.  

The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame has announced that 2022 will be a year of celebration of the 75th Anniversary of the organization. Founded in 1947 by General Douglas MacArthur and legendary Army-West Point head Coach Red Blaik, the NFF has spent the past 75 years promoting the game of football.
