Chris Hayes nominated for Rudy Award
Hurricanes WR Chris Hayes has been nominated for the Rudy Award. Fans can vote for Chris here. Fan voting closes at 5:00pm Pacific Time on December 16, 2009.
Daniel ‘Rudy’ Ruettiger founded The College Football Rudy Awards in 2007 to honor Division I football players who brought that ‘something extra’ to the team. Rudy wanted to find the most inspirational and motivational players in America who best defined what he refers to as "The Four C's": Courage, Contribution, Commitment and Character.
The winner will have an academic scholarship awarded in his name to his university and will be presented the College Football Rudy Award by Rudy Ruettiger at the Third Annual College Football Rudy Awards Ceremony on January 11, 2010 in Orlando, Florida at the Orlando World Center Marriott. The two Runners-up will each receive an academic scholarship awarded in their name to their respective universities and the Runner’s Up Award.
For those of you who don't know Chris' story, ESPN produced a segment that aired on "College Gameday" back in October that can be seen here.
