Trinity Football’s Globe Earns Academic Honor from NFF

San Antonio - Trinity senior linebacker Mitchell Globe has been tabbed for the National Football Foundation Hampshire Honor Society.

The Hampshire Society is composed of football players from all divisions who have maintained a cumulative 3.2 GPA or better throughout their collegiate careers. The accolade honors student-athletes who have distinguished themselves in the classroom and on the field.

Globe is a finance major and was a member of the Southern Collegiate Athletic Conference (SCAC) Academic Honor Roll. Trinity football joined the Southern Athletic Association (SAA) prior to the 2017 campaign, and Globe was elected to the All-SAA First Team Defense after the season. He had been named twice to the All-SCAC First Team.

During the season, Globe was selected twice as the SAA Defensive Player of the Week and was elected to the D3football.com Team of the Week. Globe led the Tigers with 101 total tackles, including 47 solo. His total tackles are tied for 23rd in Trinity's single-season records.

He also paced the team with 12 quarterback hurries and two recovered fumbles. Globe was tied for the lead with three QB sacks and two forced fumbles, and was second with 11 tackles for a loss. His most thrilling play occurred as he returned a fumble 63 yards for a touchdown in Trinity's overtime victory over Chapman (CA) University.

Globe chalked up 253 career tackles, which sent him to 13th place in Trinity's record books.

Led by fourth-year Head Coach Jerheme Urban, the Tigers completed the 2017 season with a 6-4 overall record. Trinity posted a 5-3 SAA mark and finished fourth in the conference standings.
