Wolf Pack’s Weber tabbed to Wuerffel Trophy watch list

Nevada senior linebacker Lucas Weber has earned a selection to the Wuerffel Trophy watch list.

This is Weber’s first selection to the preseason watch list for the Wuerffel Trophy, which is known as “College Football’s Premier Award for Community Service.”

Named after 1996 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback Danny Wuerffel from the University of Florida, the Wuerffel Trophy is awarded to the FBS player that best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement. He was also named a nominee for the AFCA Good Works Team earlier this month.

The Reno native has been active in the community, including volunteering last Easter to help feed the homeless in downtown Reno. He also attended Lemelson Elementary for Reading Week to read to the kids and helped with a fundraiser at Scheels that benefitted the Children’s Cancer Foundation. On the athletic side, Weber appeared in 12 games last season where he recorded 56 tackles and 10.5 for loss. He also totaled a career-best 5.5 sacks, as well as one pass breakup and a fumble recovery.

The formal announcement of the 2019 recipient will be made at the National Football Foundation’s festivities in New York City on Dec. 10. The presentation of the 2019 Wuerffel Trophy will occur at the 51st All Sports Association Awards Banquet on Feb. 14 in Fort Walton Beach, Fla.
