Finalists set for Burlsworth Trophy
Four finalists have been chosen for the Burlsworth Trophy awarded to college football’s top player who began his career as a walk-on.
Finalists for the 8th annual Burlsworth Trophy include Memphis wide receiver Anthony Miller, Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, Washington State quarterback Luke Falk and Wisconsin tight end Troy Fumagalli. Mayfield received the award in 2015 and 2016.
Finalists were chosen from 63 nominees. CEO Marty Burlsworth said the selection committee’s vote necessitated bringing in a fourth finalist this year for the first time. The winner will be announced Dec. 4.
