NEW YORK (AP) - Texas center Dallas Griffin won the Draddy Award as the top scholar-athlete in college football.

Griffin has already graduated with a double major in business and finance and is enrolled in UT's MBA program.

Representing Division III were Mount Union center Eric Safran and Illinois College defensive back Jake Weller.
