Dukes named a William V. Campbell Trophy Semifinalist
By Christopher Coombs
Lindsey Wilson graduate student Cameron Dukes is one of 176 student-athletes across collegiate football to be selected as a semifinalist for the 2021 William V. Campbell Trophy, the National Football Foundation & College Hall of Fame officials announced today.
Dukes is one of seven student-athletes from the NAIA to earn the recognition.
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 2,555 yards with 33 touchdowns. He added 10 rushing touchdowns to his tally while helping the Blue Raiders to the program's first NAIA National Championship, an MSC divisional title and an undefeated season.
This season, Dukes has played in two games, throwing for 324-yards and five touchdowns to go along with 80 rushing yards and another score.
The native of Shepherdsville, Ky. ranks third on the program's all-time list in passing yards (8,324), passing touchdowns (90) and first in completion percentage (62.3 percent). As a starter, Dukes boasts a 32-4 record.
Off the field, Dukes is a three-time NAIA Scholar-Athlete and a four-time Academic All Mid-South Conference performer. Last season he headlined the CoSIDA Football Academic All-America list.
He volunteers at a local elementary school, working with the youth as well as volunteering in the community. He is currently working on his master's of business administration.
Finalists will be announced on Oct. 27th and each of them will receive an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship as a member of the 63rd NFF National Scholar-Athlete Class. One member of the class will be declared the winner of the 32nd William V. Campbell Trophy and will have his postgraduate scholarship increased to $25,000.
