Former San Diego State long snapper Jeff Overbaugh of Anchorage has been named to the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society.

Overbaugh, one of only three players in school history to play in 53 games at SDSU, was perfect last season in snaps, going 156-for-156 [includes punt snaps, PAT snaps and field goal snaps].

For his career, he was perfect in snaps [510-for-510].

He was named a Rubio Long Snapping Second-Team All-American. Overbaugh was also honored as a top practice performer panel of NFL scouts and Reese’s Senior Bowl personnel for his play over the week in Mobile in January, which featured some of the top draft eligible seniors in the nation.

Overbaugh, of Service High fame, helped San Diego State finish 2015 with an 11-3 record, which tied a school record for the most wins in a single year. The Aztecs finished with a 10-game winning streak and won the Mountain West title and Hawaii Bowl.

He’s also been a two-time MW Scholar-Athlete, three-time MW Fall All-Academic Team member and a winner of the SDSU’s President’s Award for High Academic Achievement, among many other academic accolades.

To be eligible for the award, the athlete must own at least a 3.2 undergraduate GPA, complete his final year of eligibility in 2015 and be a starter or significant contributor throughout the season.
