Hoos at the @CFBPlayoff
#UVAFB All-American Micah Kiser was on the field on Monday night at the College Football Playoff championship game in Atlanta. Kiser, the 2017 Campbell Trophy recipient, was recognized during a timeout for his achievement of winning this year’s “academic Heisman”, as the award is often referred to. Kiser is UVA’s second Campbell Trophy winner. Former Cavalier Tom Burns won the Campbell Trophy in 1993, the fourth year it was awarded. Duke (David Helton, 2014) and Virginia are the only ACC schools to boast a Campbell Trophy winner while members of the league. Kiser, who received an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship as a member of the NFF National Scholar-Athlete Class, will have that scholarship increased to $25,000 as the winner of the Campbell Trophy. Kiser graduated with a degree in foreign affairs (3.42 GPA) last May and currently has a 4.0 GPA as he pursues a master’s degree in higher education.
