UNH Professor Todd DeMitchell recently received an honor unusual for an academic: he was inducted into the Leopard Athletic Hall of Fame. That’s the University of La Verne Leopards in California. As an undergraduate at La Verne, DeMitchell was a formidable linebacker on the football team and a 1969 honorable mention Small College All-America. He joins seven other La Verne alums as inductees this year, all recognized for being athletic standouts.
As Professor of Education, the Lamberton Professor of Justice Studies, and 2010 recipient of the UNH Distinguished Professor Award, DeMitchell is a standout at UNH, too…though he hasn’t been seen on the field recently.
