Drue Tranquill of Notre Dame has been named a finalist for the Wuerffel Trophy, which bills itself as college football's premier award for community service.

Blaise Taylor of Arkansas State and Courtney Love of Kentucky are the other finalists for the award, given to the Football Bowl Subdivision player who best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement.

Tranquill is a graduate of Carroll High School.

The winner will be announced at a news conference in New York City on Dec. 5. The award will be presented at a banquet in Fort Walton Beach, Florida, on Feb. 16.

The award is named after Danny Wuerffel, the 1996 Heisman Trophy winner from Florida.
