Another day, another honor for Shea Dwyer ’10. Having already set school records for rushing in a game, season, and career, and received first-team all-NESCAC honors, Shea is now a player on the national stage as well, having recently been named one of 10 finalists for the Gagliardi Trophy, the Division III equivalent of the Heisman Trophy.
The field has already been narrowed from 26 nominees to 10 finalists, and only four of those finalists will make the final cut. Each member of the 35-member national selection committee ranks the candidates 1-10 and submits his/her vote…but there are 36 ballots in all. Yes, that’s right, fan voting comprises the “36th ballot.” Voting is open now on D3football.com; the deadline is this Tuesday (Nov. 30) at noon. Regardless of your views on athletes, anyone who knows Shea knows that there are few (if any) people here as deserving of this award. Besides, wouldn’t this be a nice break from constantly hearing about how we’re the Most Vegetarian-Friendly College?
