WVU Football Zach Frazier with fans

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.

The full list of semifinalists includes: DeWayne Carter (Duke), Matthew Cindric (California), Brian Dooley (Eastern Michigan), Jordan Travis (Florida State), Dylan Leonard (Georgia Tech), Jack Freeman (Houston), Isaiah Williams (Illinois), J.J. Weaver (Kentucky), Josh Williams (LSU), Blake Corum (Michigan), Xavier McDonald (Navy), Joe Shimko (North Carolina State), Sam Hartman (Notre Dame), Cade Stover (Ohio State), Caleb Williams (Southern Cal), Joe Milton III (Tennessee), Tony Bradford, Jr. (Texas Tech), Mike Hollins (Virginia), Zach Frazier (West Virginia) and Chimere Dike (Wisconsin).

This group of semifinalists will be cut down to three finalists for the award on Wednesday, December 13. The winner will then be announced at the award ceremony in Frisco, Texas, on February 15, 2024.

Our partner site Pittsburgh Sports Now covered Pitt’s Deslin Alexandre winning the award last year. The first five Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year awards were presented to Shaquem Griffin of UCF in 2017, D’Cota Dixon of Wisconsin in 2018, Trey Smith of Tennessee in 2019, Sam Ehlinger of Texas in 2020 and Joshua Paschal of Kentucky in 2021.
