Greencastle Ind. – The National Football Foundation, in conjunction with Fidelity Investments, has named DePauw University senior Christopher Lamping the ‘Scholar-Athlete of the Day’ for April 7, 2013.

Lamping, a two-time Academic All-North Coast Athletic Conference honoree, was the recipient of the William Wallace Carson History Scholar Award and the Halford & Lillian Kneale Scholarship.

A two-time member of DePauw’s Dean’s List, Lamping played four years along the Tigers offensive line, seeing time in 21 games, starting 19.

Hailing from Fort Wayne, Ind., Lamping sports a 3.41 GPA while double-majoring in both History and French.

The NFF Scholar-Athlete of the Day is selected from the list of candidates for the NFF National Scholar-Athlete Awards, presented by Fidelity Investments. Nominated by their school as the absolute best all-around scholar-athlete on their team, 147 candidates met the high standards needed for consideration this year. As part of its effort to highlight the best of the gridiron, the NFF separately highlights each of these 147 candidates on its website. These outstanding individuals must be a senior or graduate student in their final year of eligibility, have a GPA of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale, have outstanding football ability as a first team player or significant contributor, and have demonstrated strong leadership and citizenship.
