Tulane’s Sorrell Brown named to the Wuerffel Trophy Watch List
Texas native has been an active member in the New Orleans community
NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University redshirt sophomore wide receiver Sorrell Brown was named to the Wuerffel Trophy Watch List on Thursday.
The Wuerffel Trophy, known as “College Football’s Premier Award for Community Service,” is presented each February in Fort Walton Beach. Named after 1996 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback from the University of Florida, Danny Wuerffel, the Wuerffel Trophy exists to honor college football players who serve others, celebrate their positive impact on society, and inspire greater service in the world.
“It is so inspiring to see this record number of athletes being submitted for the award,” said Wuerffel. “These young men truly represent college football’s most impactful community service leaders. We are proud to honor them.”
Brown was selected to the Wuerffel Trophy Watch List after establishing himself as an active member in the New Orleans community.
Since arriving on campus in 2018, Brown has been a member on the Student-Athlete Advisory Committee, serving as the football team’s liaison between administration and student-athletes.
The Arlington, Texas, native has served at the New Orleans Center for Public Service where he regularly engages with community leaders on social justice topics. In addition, Brown has been a member of the New Orleans Waste Warriors where he has evoked policy change, educational campaigns and events centered on reducing and reusing Tulane’s campus waste.
Brown also has been an active member in the Coalition to Restore Coastal Louisiana, St. Bernard Project and Excite All-Stars organizations.
The Wuerffel Trophy Watch List is comprised of 114 players from college football’s Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS). The number is a record for the award since it first began releasing a watch list in 2015.
