DALLAS – Fifth-year senior safety Tyler Ramsey (Southbridge, Mass.) of the Marist football team was named a national semifinalist for the 2013 William V. Campbell Trophy on Wednesday by the National Football Foundation (NFF). The Campbell Trophy is presented to the nation’s top scholar-athlete.

A starting safety, Ramsey is a two-year captain for the Red Foxes. Last year, he became the first Marist football player in program history to be a four-time Pioneer Football League (PFL) Academic Honor Roll selection. He was also named Second Team PFL All-Academic in 2010 and 2011, and was an Honorable Mention All-FPL choice in 2010.

This season, Ramsey has 15 tackles while appearing in all four of Marist’s games. He has one-and-a-half tackles for loss, and also has a pass break-up.

The national semifinalists are nominated by their schools, who are limited to one nominee each. These candidates must either be seniors or graduate students in their final year of eligibility with at least a 3.2 grade-point average on a 4.0 scale.

Out of the current field of 170 semifinalists, the NFF Awards Committee will announce the 16 finalists for the Campbell Trophy on Oct. 31. Each of the finalists will receive $18,000 in postgraduate scholarship, and will be invited to the 56th NFF Annual Awards Dinner in New York City on Dec. 10.

Marist (2-2 overall, 1-0 PFL) returns home Saturday to host PFL foe Valparaiso on Alumni Weekend. Kickoff is set for noon. Single-game tickets for Marist home games are available here.
