AUBURN, Ala. -- Jonathan Wallace won't have to go far to receive congratulations for being named a member of the National Football Foundation's Hampshire Honor Society.
He's still in the Auburn athletic building, having gone from Auburn football player to Auburn graduate assistant coach.
Wallace, along with former Auburn players Tucker Tuberville and Duncan McKinney, was named members of the national scholastic honor society Wednesday.
The Hampshire Honor Society recognizes players who were a starter or significant contributor in their last year of eligibility, maintained a 3.2 cumulative grade point average through his academic career and met the NCAA standards for progress toward a degree.
Wallace, a one-time Auburn quarterback who moved to receiver, was one of 11 players from around the country honored on the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team at the Sugar Bowl at the end of the 2015 season. He has his undergraduate degree.
Tuberville served as a backup to Auburn's quarterbacks the last three years, getting into a game last season. He'll receive his degree this summer. McKinney was an Auburn reserve kicker who received his undergraduate degree in December.
