Dukes named a William V. Campbell Trophy Semifinalist
By Christopher Coombs
Lindsey Wilson graduate student Cameron Dukes is one of 199 student-athletes across collegiate football to be selected as a semifinalist for the 2020 William V. Campbell Trophy, presented by Mazda, the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame officials announced today.
Dukes is one of only nine student-athletes from the NAIA to earn the recognition.
Finalists will be announced later this season and each of them will receive an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship as a member of the 62nd NFF National Scholar-Athlete Class. One member of the class will be declared the winner of the 31st William V. Campbell Trophy and will have his postgraduate scholarship increased to $25,000.
The semifinalists were selected from a group of candidates nominated by their institution. According to the NFF, nominees must be a senior or graduate student in their final year of playing eligibility, have a GPA of at least 3.2 on the 4.0 scale, have outstanding football ability as a first-team player or significant contributor and have demonstrated strong leadership and citizenship.
The class is selected each year by the NFF awards committee, which is comprised of a nationally recognized group of media, College Football Hall of Famers and athletics administrators.
Last season, Dukes threw for over 3,300 yards with 35 touchdowns. He added 12 rushing touchdowns to his tally while helping the Blue Raiders to a divisional title and an undefeated regular season. LWC also picked up their most wins in a season (12) while advancing to the NAIA National Championship Semifinals for the first time in program history.
The native of Shepherdsville, Ky. ranks third on the programs all-time list in passing yards (5,445), passing touchdowns (54) and second in completion percentage (60.8 percent) in just three seasons. As a starter, Dukes boasts a 19-4 record.
Off the field, Dukes is a two-time NAIA Scholar-Athlete and a three-time Academic All Mid-South Conference performer. Last season he was named the MSC Male Student-Athlete of the Year and an NAIA All-American Honorable Mention.
He volunteers at a local elementary school, working with the youth as well as volunteering in the community. Last spring he completed his student teaching work and is currently working on his masters of business administration.
