“This year’s process has been both inspiring and extraordinarily difficult,” said Danny Wuerffel.  “So many quality young men playing college football are doing so many great things in their communities and around the world serving others.  That’s the encouraging part.  The extremely difficult part is narrowing it down to three finalists.”
