WILLIAMSPORT, Pa. – Five significant contributors to the Lycoming College football team have earned a spot on the 2020 Hampshire Honor Society, the National Football Foundation in Dallas, Texas, announced on Wednesday, April 15, as the group ties Lycoming’s high-water mark for selections for the third time in four years.

The five members are seniors Keith Batkowski (Montoursville, Pa./Montoursville Area), Cody Botts (Millmont, Pa./Mifflinburg), Zach Kovach (Duncansville, Pa./Hollidaysburg Area), Stephen Toczylousky (Catawissa, Pa./Southern Columbia) and Korahn Williams (Reading, Pa./Reading), as the group ties the 2017 and 2018 teams for the most selections in program history.

In order to be eligible for membership into the honor society, a player must be a starter or significant reserve on the team as a senior, maintain a 3.2 cumulative grade point average throughout his entire course of undergraduate study and meet all NCAA-mandated progress toward degree requirements and graduation.
