University of Michigan graduate student linebacker and Kenton graduate Noah Furbush is one of 179 semifinalists for the 2018 William V. Campbell Trophy.
Established in 1990 by the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame (NFF), the award recognizes an individual as the absolute best football scholar-athlete in the nation.
Furbush completed his undergraduate studies last spring and is now in pursuit of a master’s degree in space engineering. He has appeared in 36 career contests (seven starts) at linebacker and has 47 career tackles with four for loss, one sack, two fumble recoveries and two interceptions.
This is not the first NFF honor for Furbush, who upon his undergraduate graduation was the first recipient of the NFF’s now-annual Bo Schembechler Postgraduate Scholarship. The NFF will announce 12-14 finalists for the William V. Campbell Trophy on Oct. 31 and each finalist will be awarded an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship as a member of the NFF National Scholar-Athlete Class. The winner will be honored Dec. 4 at the 60th NFF Annual Awards Dinner in New York City and will have his postgraduate scholarship increased to $25,000.
