John Urschel To Be Honored During BCS Championship Game

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 represent 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.
