MANHATTAN, Kansas – Kansas State junior quarterback Will Howard was honored for the second time in as many weeks for his work in the community, as he was named to the watch list for the 2022 Wuerffel Trophy, the award’s committee announced Thursday.

The Wuerffel Trophy is named after Danny Wuerffel, the 1996 Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback, and honors college football players who serve others, celebrate their positive impact on society and inspire greater service in the world.

Howard’s mention on the list is the eighth-straight season a Wildcat has been up for the award since its inaugural season of 2015. Fellow quarterback Skylar Thompson was a candidate for the award the last two seasons, while Denzel Goolsby (2019), Dalton Risner (2017-18) and Dante Barnett (2015-16) were also up for the award. Risner was a finalist for the honor in 2018.
