Wuerffel Trophy Voting

Nominations for the Wuerffel Trophy are submitted August 1 - October 12 from the Sports Information Directors of the participating  NCAA FBS (formerly known as Division I) universities.  Semifinalists are chosen and released to the media in early November, then delivered to the voting committee to select the finalists, and ultimately, the recipient.  The voting committee for the Wuerffel Trophy winner is comprised of select national media, retired head coaches, past winners and the Wuerffel Trophy Board of Directors. 


Voters are asked that the finalists’ documented Community Service make up 50% or better of their decision, while on the field performance and academics comprise 25% or less each.


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?”
