Mississippi State’s Dak Prescott is one of 30 student-athletes selected as a candidate for the Senior CLASS Award, presented annually to annually to an FBS senior with notable achievements excelling in character and competition as well as in the community and classroom.

Prescott is one of five players from the Southeastern Conference up for the award joining Auburn defensive back Jonathan Jones, LSU punter Jamie Keehn, Alabama linebacker Reggie Ragland and Vanderbilt tight end Steven Scheu.

Prescott is the first Bulldog football player selected as a candidate since Johnthan Banks was a finalist in 2012. Former MSU pitcher Ross Mitchell was also a finalist last year.

The list will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the season and a winner be announced in January.

I have covered Mississippi State in some capacity since 2004 and joined the Daily Journal staff in 2013. I enjoy short walks on the beach, performing concerts in my car and watching professional wrestling.
