SALEM, Va. (AP) - Mount Union junior quarterback Kevin Burke won the Gagliardi Trophy on Wednesday night as the top all-around player in NCAA Division III.
Burke has led Mount Union (14-0) to a spot in the national championship game Friday night against Wisconsin-Whitewater in Salem. He's 29-0 as the Purple Raiders' starting quarterback, including a 15-0 mark last season en route to the school's record 11th Division III title.
Burke has completed 212 of 337 passes for 3,514 yards and 44 touchdowns this season. He also has run for 1,035 yards and 13 touchdowns.
Burke is the record sixth Mount Union player to win the award, following quarterback Jim Ballard in 1993, quarterback Bill Borchert in 1997, running back Chuck Moore in 2001, running back Dan Pugh in 2002 and quarterback Greg Micheli in 2008.
