The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame announced Yale QB Morgan Roberts as one of its 135 semifinalists for the William V. Campbell Trophy, which recognizes the top scholar-athlete in the nation.

The NFF will announce 15 finalists on Oct. 29 and each of them will receive an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship as a member of the NFF National Scholar-Athlete Class.

According the NFF, the players are nominated by their schools, which are limited to one nominee each, candidates for the awards must be a senior or graduate student in their final year of eligibility, have a GPA of at least 3.2 on a 4.0 scale, have outstanding football ability as a first team player or significant contributor and have demonstrated strong leadership and citizenship. The class is selected each year by the NFF Awards Committee, which is comprised of a nationally recognized group of media, College Football Hall of Famers and athletics administrators.
