Not all achievements and accolades in college football are actually earned on the field. The Wuerffel Trophy is presented annually by the All Sports Association of Fort Walton Beach to the top college football players having an impact in the community. On Tuesday, the list of semifinalists for the award was announced.
- Spencer Drango, Baylor University, senior, offensive line
- Ross Martin, Duke University, senior, kicker
- Nate Sudfeld, Indiana University, senior, quarterback
- Landon Foster, University of Kentucky, senior, punter
- Garrett Adcock, University of New Mexico, junior, offensive line
- Corey Robinson, University of Notre Dame, junior, wide receiver
- Ty Darlington, University of Oklahoma, senior, offensive line
- Alex Zmolik, University of Toledo, senior, tight end
The award was first presented in 2005, with LSU center Rudy Niswanger receiving the new trophy. Other past winners include Florida quarterback Tim Tebow, Texas defensive end Sam Acho, Alabama offensive tackle Barrett Jones and USC quarterback Matt Barkley. Last year’s recipient was Ole Miss linebacker Deterrian Shackelford.
Three finalists for this year’s award will be named on November 24 and a winner will be announced on December 8 at the National Football Foundation’s press conference in New York City. The winner will then be interviewed during ESPN’s college football awards show two days later on December 10 in Atlanta.
