 FLORENCE, Ala. (AP) -Running back Danny Woodhead of Chadron State, college football's career rushing leader, was among three record-setting finalists announced Monday for the Harlon Hill Trophy given to the top player in Division II.
The other finalists are Delta State linebacker Michael Eubanks, who has the Division II career record for sacks, and running back Bernard Scott of Abilene Christian, who set Division II records for touchdowns and points in a season.
The winner will be announced Dec. 14.
Woodhead, a senior from North Platte, Neb., is trying to become the third person in the award's 22-year history to be named national player of the year twice. He has been a Hill candidate four straight years.
Woodhead finished his career with 7,962 yards rushing and is second in all divisions in all-purpose yardage with 9,479. His 109 career touchdowns ties the NCAA record and his 654 career points ranks second all-time.
Eubanks, a senior from Cleveland, Miss., led one of the nation's top defenses this season with 90 tackles, 12 sacks and 27 tackles for loss. He has 39 career sacks.
Scott, a junior from Vernon, Texas, set division records for touchdowns scored in a season (39), rushing touchdowns in a season (35) and points scored in a season (234).
