Three college snappers are among the nominees for the 2103 Burlsworth Trophy. Alan D’Appollonio (Arkansas), Ryan Iverson (Colorado) and Kelly Mason (Kentucky) are the snappers on the nomination list. Iverson was also nominated last season.
The Burlsworth Trophy is named after former Arkansas walk-on Brandon Burlsworth, who was killed shortly after being selected in the 1999 NFL Draft. The award is given to honor an outstanding college football player that began their career as a walk-on.
