WVU seniors Eric Jobe and Gregg Pugnetti are members of the 2011 National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society.

Jobe, an offensive lineman, and Pugnetti, a punter, were two of just eight Big East players to make the list. Syracuse, Rutgers and UConn also placed two players apiece on the list.

Jobe started 31 games and played in 51 for West Virginia over his four-year career while maintaining his excellent academic record in industrial engineering.



Gregg Pugnetti
Pugnetti averaged 41.8 yards per kick during his senior season with a long of 71. He forced 23 fair catches and placed another 24 punts inside the 20-yard line.

The society, which includes 671 players from the past season, is comprised of college football players from all divisions of play. Each member must have maintained a 3.2 GPA or better, been a starter or a significant substitute his last year of eligibility, and have met all NCAA-mandated progress towards degree requirements and graduation.
