Zach Frazier is once again being recognized individually, although this time it’s not just for his prowess as a player.
Frazier was named one of 20 semifinalists for the Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award that honors exemplary leadership by a college player.
This year is the seventh year for the Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award. Frazier is in the midst of wrapping up his college career at WVU this season and has been placed on every watch list imaginable. He’s regarded as one of the best centers in the country and considered a likely NFL draft pick.
We are proud to announce the 20 semifinalists for the 7th annual Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award, presented by Tom Thumb and Albertsons. The award honors exemplary leadership among FBS players, both on and off the field. https://t.co/2sU5Ww5wnO pic.twitter.com/gLf2E6lcpM
