Barrett Jones - University of Alabama

 

Standing 6 feet, 5 inches tall, weighing 311 pounds, it’s tough to miss Alabama junior offensive lineman Barrett Jones.  The versatile, All-American is widely lauded as one of the best players in the country for his play on the field.  But his work off the field – both in the classroom and in the community – is often overlooked.  It certainly didn’t get by the All Sports Association, who named Jones the winner of the 2011 Wuerffel Trophy.

Tim Hiller - Western Michigan University

When Tim Hiller was growing up, his dad would circle items in the newspaper about football players who possessed admirable qualities both in the huddle and outside of it and present the articles to his son for consumption.

So it comes as no surprise that the Western Michigan quarterback became familiar with Danny Wuerffel from about the time he began to read.

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?”
