NEW ORLEANS – Tulane linebacker Nick Anderson was selected to the 2022 Wuerffel Trophy Watch List on Thursday.

The honor has been dubbed “college football’s premier award for community service”.

Named after Danny Wuerffel, the 1996 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback from the University of Florida, the Wuerffel Trophy is presented each February in Fort Walton Beach, Florida. The trophy honors college football players who serve others, celebrate their positive impact on society, and inspire greater service in the world.

“I continue to be impressed with the number of college football players who are achieving on the field and still dedicating time to make a positive impact in their community,” said Wuerffel. “The student-athletes on this watch list are positively impacting organizations throughout the country.”

Nominations for the Wuerffel Trophy are made by the respective universities’ Sports Information Departments and will close on October 14. An up-to-date list of nominees can be found at www.wuerffeltrophy.org beginning on August 1. Semifinalists for the award will be announced on November 1, and finalists will be announced on November 22.

The formal announcement of the 2022 recipient is scheduled to be made on December 8, and the presentation of the 2022 Wuerffel Trophy will occur on February 24, 2023.

Anderson was a fourth team All-American Athletic Conference selection by Phil Steele when he made 56 tackles in 2021, a total that was the third-highest on the Green Wave. He also posted 7.5 tackles for a loss of 55 yards.

Steele elevated Anderson to a third team pick on the outlet’s 2022 preseason team.
