MOUNT PLEASANT - Central Michigan's Matt Berning and Sean Murnane have been named to the National Football Foundation's Hampshire Honor Society.

Berning and Murnane are two of the 671 student-athletes from 241 schools nationwide named to the team. The Hampshire Honor Society honors student-athletes from all NCAA and NAIA divisions in their final year of eligibility who have maintained a cumulative 3.2 grade-point average.

CMU has had at least one representative on each of the five Hampshire Honor Society classes and has had multiple honorees each of the past four seasons. One of 31 NCAA Bowl Subdivision schools with multiple honorees in 2011, CMU's two selections are the most of any Mid-American Conference program or any NCAA Division I program in the state of Michigan.

Berning maintains a 3.79 grade-point average as a marketing major. A four-year letterman and three-year starter as a linebacker, he was named to the 2010 Academic All-America second team and was an All-MAC first team selection as a senior. Berning was a three-year member of the Academic All-MAC team.

Murnane, a defensive tackle, carries a 3.47 GPA as a marketing major and will earn his bachelor's degree this spring. He was a two-time selection to the academic all-district squad, earning first-team accolades in 2010 and second-team recognition in 2009. Murnane was a four-year letterman, three-year starter, three-time All-MAC third team honoree and two-time Academic All-MAC selection.
