Alabama's Fitzpatrick, Auburn's Carlson Named to Wuerffel Watch List

LSU Athletics

Colorado State senior's Michael Gallup and Zack Golditch were named to the preseason watch lists for the 2017 Biletnikoff Award and Wuerffel Trophy, respectively, on Tuesday. His six made field goals at Pitt on October 27 tied a conference record and his 21 points were the most by a Hokies' kicker in a single game. He is among the most active players on the team with local community service and has served on the Boilermaker Athletic Council each of the last two years.

Leavitt, who earned academic all-conference honors in 2016, is on schedule to graduate for Utah State this academic year in interdisciplinary studies. He is now pursuing a master's degree in liberal studies.

Iowa State senior offensive lineman Jake Campos is one of 109 players under consideration for the 2017 Wuerffel Trophy, announced this week by the All Sports Association in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. College football's top community service honor awards student-athletes for their outstanding community service achievements and commitment to giving back. Voting is performed by a national selection committee comprising media, college football notables, former winners and former coaches.

Nominations for the Wuerffel Trophy are made by the respective universities' sports information departments and will close on October 13, only one per school. Semifinalists for the award will be announced November 2 and finalists will be announced November 22.

The formal announcement of the 2017 recipient will be made at the National Football Foundation's press conference in New York City on December 5.

The presentation of the 2017 Wuerffel Trophy will occur at the 49th Annual All Sports Association Awards Banquet on February 16, 2018 in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. Five of the 12 winners have been quarterbacks, including last year's victor, Texas A&M's Trevor Knight.
