NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University linebacker Nick Anderson was one of 79 players from the Football Bowl Subdivision that was recognized on Wednesday as a William V. Campbell Trophy semifinalist.

Named after the late Bill Campbell, former captain and head coach at Columbia University, the award is presented to college football’s premier scholar-athlete. The Campbell Trophy is presented annually in January at the New York Athletic Club.

The award exists to honor the player who displays the best combination of academics, community service, and on-field performance.

Anderson was named to the preseason watch list after establishing himself as a leader in community service on the Green Wave football team. The Tulane junior is highly involved in the community throughout New Orleans and in his hometown of Vicksburg, Mississippi.

In the classroom, he holds a 3.7 grade point average and is majoring in Homeland Security. This past December he was selected as one of two departmental recipients of the Stephen Martin Scholars award.

Anderson started the 2021 season on a high note as he recorded 8.0 tackles and 1.5 tackles for loss in the season opener versus Oklahoma. His performance earned him a place on the American Athletic Conference weekly honor roll.
