Senior Cody Kessler named to Wuerffel Trophy Watch list. The Wuerffel Trophy is awarded "to the college football player who best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement." Kessler adds the Wuerffel Trophy watch list along with Maxwell Award watch list.
In 2014, Kessler quietly put together a record-breaking season in his first year working with Coach Sark's offense. This season, Kessler already has the best odds of anyone in the Pac 12 to win the Heisman Trophy.
Matt Barkley won the Wuerffel Trophy in 2012, the only other Trojan to win the award. 2012 as you may recall was a season filled with high expectations but one that Kessler, and pretty much all of us would like to avoid a repeat.
In case you forgot how much class Matt Barkley has, watch his acceptance speech from 2012:
