University of South Florida sophomore Armando Sanchez was honored Wednesday night at the National Football Foundation and College Football Hall of Fame’s Tampa Chapter awards banquet as the Outstanding USF Scholar-Athlete.

Sanchez was a special teams standout for the Bulls in 2010, finishing with 20 tackles. He served as captain for the special teams units four times during the season. Sanchez, a communications major, also excels in the classroom. He is a two-time member on the Big East All-Academic Team and posted a 4.0 GPA during the fall semester.

Sanchez was presented the award by Bulls defensive ends/special teams coach Vernon Hargreaves.

Also honored at the banquet was USF president Judy Genshaft, who was named the recipient of the J. Crockett Farnell Contribution to Amateur Football Award. Genshaft was unable to attend the event because of a prior commitment, so Bulls football coach Skip Holtz accepted the award on her behalf.
