"In my 20 years of serving as the SID at LSU, there's been no student-athlete that

better represents LSU in all phases - on field, in the classroom and in the

community - than Blake Ferguson. He's a pro in all three areas and is always

willing to help no matter the situation. He's a dedicated teammate, he's passionate

about his work in the classroom and he takes tremendous pride in helping others

who are less fortunate. He's a leader on the field for the Tigers and he's a leader

when it comes to rallying his teammates for a cause or for community service

events. Blake always puts others first and is as selfless and caring as they come. In

my opinion, he represents what this award is all about."




ABOUT US

Why was the Wuerffel Trophy created?  We felt that there was a void in major college football awards. Mike Bianchi of the Orlando Sentinel put it best when he wrote, “The Wuerffel. It’s about time. There’s an award for the best quarterback, best running back, wide receiver, best linebacker, best center and even best kicker and punter. Why not one for the best human being?”
