Indiana QB Nate Sudfeld named Wuerffel Trophy Semifinalist

Indiana senior quarterback Nate Sudfeld was named one of eight semifinalists for the 2015 Wuerffel Trophy, awarded annually to the player "who best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement" (official website). The award is named after former Florida QB and Hesiman Trophy winner Danny Wuerffel and past winners include Tim Tebow, Sam Acho, Matt Barkley and Gabe Ikard. 

Sudfeld's community serice includes a spring break service trup to Uganda with his family and volunteer work with the Boys & Girls Club, the Andrew Luck/IU Health Change The Play Program and Read Across America (IU press release). Sudfeld is also a nominee for the Senior CLASS Award, an award won by Indiana basketball guard Jordan Hulls after the 2012-13 season. 

On the field, Sudfeld is in the final year of an impressive Indiana career. Last week against Michigan State, Sudfeld grabbed a share of the Indiana career touchdown passes record (48). So far this season, he has passed for 2,049 yards and 14 touchdowns with just 4 interceptions. He also rushed for three touchdowns on the year, giving him 54 total career touchdowns as a Hoosier.
