Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa was named a semifinalist for William V. Campbell Trophy, given to the “absolute best football scholar-athlete in the nation for his combined academic success, football performance and exemplary leadership,” it was announced Wednesday.
Each Division I program nominates a student-athlete who has a grade point average of at least 3.2 on its team. The National Football Foundation Awards Committee then selects the semifinalists. The finalists will be named on Oct. 25.
Maryland’s program leader in career passing yards (8,991), completions (752) and passing touchdowns (59) maintained a 3.61 grade point average during the winter semester and was an Academic All-Big Ten selection in 2022.
Tagovailoa and the Terps (4-0) will look to become 5-0 for the first time since 2001 when they host Indiana (2-2) Saturday.
