Walter Payton Award
It was quite a season for Jeremiah Briscoe. So good in fact that he often didn't even play four quarters and somehow still found a way to etch his name in the record books.
Buck Buchanan Award
  • Team: UNI
  • Height: 74
  • Weight: 265
  • Position: DL
It's only fitting that Karter Schult finally became the first Northern Iowa player to win the STATS FCS Buck Buchanan Award. The Tripoli, Iowa, native has made it very clear that playing for the Panthers was a dream come true.
Doris Robinson Award
To say sports has taught Tyler Swafford teamwork, sportsmanship and drive is an understatement. Especially when his life's work may be to stand up for the most vulnerable and foster freedom and democracy in places where they are fragile.
Jerry Rice Award
  • Team: Duquesne
  • Height: 71
  • Weight: 220
  • Position: RB
Perhaps by the time the FCS' top freshman is done with his college career, there will be a second Hines Field in Pittsburgh.
