DALLAS (AP) -The Draddy Trophy, given annually to the top scholar-athlete in college football, will be renamed for Bill Campbell, chairman of the software company Intuit and a former player and coach at Columbia University.
The National Football Foundation and College Hall of Fame made the announcement Wednesday.
The NFF has been awarding the Draddy Trophy, along with a $25,000 scholarship for post-graduate studies, since 1990.
The trophy was named after the late Vincent dePaul Draddy, who served as NFF chairman for 19 years. He played quarterback at Manhattan College and went on to develop the Izod clothing brand.
Campbell was the captain of the 1961 Columbia Ivy League championship team. He lives in Palo Alto, Calif.
