This award is named in honor of University
of Miami three-time Collegiate All-American and NFL Hall of Famer
Ted Hendricks (hey, that's me!). If you would like to become a sponsor
of this event, check out the Foundation page for more information.
On-field performance, leadership abilities
and contributions to school and community are some of the criteria
used to determine the award winner. The candidates may represent any
class (freshman through senior) as well as any recognized four-year
NCAA member school (Division I through Division III).
Leading college coaches, former players and
coaches, media members and pro football personnel professionals vote
in the selection process.
Hendricks Award winners: Elvis Dumerville, University of Louisville
(2005) David Pollack, University of Georgia (2003 and 2004), Terrell
Suggs, Arizona State University (2002) All were first round picks
in the National Football League draft.
It looks like this year's fine young athletes
are going to make the 2006 Award Selection both a thrill and a challenge!
