Tyler Terry
DALLAS - Trine University senior Tyler Terry was one of 121 semifinalists named by the National Football Foundation for the William V. Campbell Trophy. The William V. Campbell Trophy (formerly known as the Draddy Trophy) is the highest honor in college football for a scholar athlete.

"Tyler will be successful in whatever he chooses to do. He has high standards  of personal excellence; he's a great teammate and understands what it takes to be the best. While other players get attention, Tyler is in the trenches providing opportunities for his teammates to be successful. Our program is built on guys like him."

Terry, an Exercise Science major from Stroh, Ind., has a 3.84 grade point
average Tyler Terry in action and is a member of several academic honor societies, including
Phi Eta Sigma, Alpha Chi, Chi Alpha Sigma, Delta Mu Delta, has also
been an Academic All-District Five and MIAA Academic Honor Roll
selection.

On campus, he is has been a member of the President's List as
sophomore and a junior and maintained the highest sophomore and
junior GPA on the football team.

Each semifinalist was nominated by their schools, limiting each
to one nominee, which must be a senior or graduate student in their
final year of eligibility, have a GPA of at least 3.2 on a 4.0
scale, have outstanding football ability as a first team player or
significant contributor, and have demonstrated strong leadership
and citizenship.

The trophy was renamed last fall in honor of Bill Campbell, the chairman of Intuit, former player and head coach at Columbia University and the 2004 recipient of the NFF's Gold Medal.

The NFF Awards Committee will select up to 15 finalists and announce the results via national press release on Thursday, Oct. 28. Each finalist will be recognized as part of the 2010 NFF National Scholar-Athlete Class, receiving an $18,000 post-graduate scholarship.

The Campbell Trophy winner, who will have his scholarship increased to $25,000 and receive a 25-pound bronze trophy, will be announced live at the NFF's Annual Awards Dinner on Dec. 7 at the prestigious Waldorf Astoria in New York City. A total distribution of $277,000 in scholarships will be awarded that evening, bringing the NFF's all-time scholarship distribution to $9.5 million.
