Barkley Wins Wuerffel Trophy

USC QB Matt Barkley wins the Wuerffel Trophy, which goes to QB who “combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement.”

“This is amazing,” said Barkley. “Danny Wuerffel is a guy who has represented college football as well as it can be represented. He’s a tremendous human being and he’s probably the best example of what an all-around student-athlete can really be. It’s humbling.”

    Nice, but hardly what was expected at the beginning of the season. Talk about major regression in a player’s reputation? He had to have help with this happening so quickly. Enter one gameplanning-playcaller to do the trick for you.

    A well-deserved honor for a great role model. The kid’s handled disappointment this year much better than most men twice his age. This Bruin applauds this fine Trojan.
