As reported by FOX News

Wuerffel Trophy National Selection Committee member Bobby Bowden is standing by a coach at the high school level in Washington who lost his job after refusing to stop praying after games.

Former Bremerton High School assistant football coach Joe Kennedy is taking his fight to the Supreme Court, hoping to be reinstated.

A petition was filed on behalf of Kennedy, and his attorneys hold that he was "wrongfully 'fired,'" according to the Kitsap Sun.

"The district kept Kennedy on leave for the remainder of the 2015 football season and did not renew his contract in 2016," Chris Henry reported.

Coach Bowden was interviewed on Fox and Friends and here is his conversation.


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?”
