Longtime Wuerffel Trophy supporter Herff Jones was once again a huge part of the Wuerffel Trophy celebration and the All Sports Association Awards Banquet on February 15th and 16th.

As they have done in past years, they delivered rings for former recipients, this time Barrett Jones and D.T. Shackelford, commemorating their selection into the Wuerffel Trophy family of recipients.

Only this year, the rings were personally presented to Jones and Shackelford by Herff Jones representatives Sarah McDonald (Houston, Tex.) and Brian Wier (Jacksonville, Fla.) at the Wuerffel Trophy's Thursday night dinner.

Also at the All Sports Banquet on Friday, the longtime sponsor stepped up again with the night's marquis auction item, a trip for 4 to the Florida State vs Notre Dame game on November 10, which sold for over $10,000!

Herff Jones has been an official supporter of the Wuerffel Trophy since 2006.

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?”
