Falk Slips By Mayfield To Win Burlsworth Trophy

Posted: Updated:
SPRINGDALE, Arkansas -

Washington State quarterback Luke Falk has won the 2017 Burlsworth Trophy over two-time recipient Baker Mayfield, the Burlsworth Foundation announced Monday.

The Burlsworth Trophy annually honors the most outstanding college football player in America who began his career as a walk-on.

Mayfield has now missed out on two awards that were thought to be in the bag for the fifth-year senior. Last week, Mason Rudolph won the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. Mayfield is still a finalist for several more awards and is the frontrunner to win the Heisman Trophy.
