Bentley University safety and Waltham High graduate Don Hopkins has been named a preseason honorable-mention Division 2 All-America by the Consensus Draft Services.
The 6-foot-1, 205-pound Hopkins was the defensive MVP for the Falcons, and a first-team All-Northeast-10 Conference selection last season. He had six interceptions, second in the NE-10. He ranked fifth in Division 2 in interceptions per game.
Hopkins, who didn’t play during the 2009 season after a solid freshman year, was also second on the team last fall with 61 tackles.
He and his twin brother, Steve Hopkins, who also patrols the defensive backfield for Bentley, have been named captains of the football team as seniors this fall.
