John Urschel To Be Honored During BCS Championship Game

0

At tomorrow’s BCS Championship game in Pasadena, John Urschel will be publicly honored during the first quarter for winning the 2013 William V. Campbell Trophy as the nation’s best football scholar-athlete. In addition to the public presentation, Urschel will receive $25,000 for post-graduate work.

“The national championship game provides the ultimate platform for showcasing the educational opportunities created by college football for the student-athletes who play our game,” said BCS Executive Director Bill Hancock.

“The Campbell Trophy and 2013 recipient John Urschel┬árepresent the fulfillment of that promise at the highest level. By featuring the Campbell Trophy, we hope to inspire future young people to build a foundation that will benefit them long after they leave the playing field.”

It’s already been a busy offseason for Urschel, who was named first team All-Big Ten and was a third-team Associated Press All-American in addition to winning the Campbell Trophy. He was also the 2013 Senior CLASS Award winner among college football student-athletes nationwide.

Urschel’s impact was perhaps felt even more off the field, however. In addition to graduating with a 4.0, Urschel has been published and was heavily involved in Uplifting Athletes during his time at Penn State.

Here’s hoping Mark Emmert is in attendance tomorrow so he can get a taste of our #culture.
