Brock Purdy Leads Big 12 Players on Wuerffel Watch List

NCAA Football: Alamo Bowl-Iowa State vs Washington State

Iowa State quarterback Brock Purdy leads several Big 12 players selected to the 2021 Danny Wuerffel Trophy Watch List, which was released on Thursday.

Purdy led the Cyclones to one of their best seasons in history, winning nine games and ending up at the top of the Big 12 standings in the regular season. Despite losing to OU in the Big 12 title game, the Cyclones went on to defeat Oregon in the Fiesta Bowl. In most preseason polls the Cyclones are in the Top 10. Purdy is a two-time O’Brien Award semifinalist.

Established in 2005, The Wuerffel Trophy honors college football athletes who are serving others, while also achieving greatness on the football field and in the classroom. As part of the National Football Federation’s Collegiate Awards, The Wuerffel Trophy was the first major award honoring the character of service to others.
