CHARLOTTE, N.C. – The Charlotte Touchdown Club has
moved the date of the Bronko Nagurski Trophy banquet back one week
to Dec. 10.
The event originally was scheduled for Dec. 3 at the Adams Mark
Hotel in Charlotte. But because of the tragedies in New York City,
Washington, D.C., and Pennsylvania on Sept. 11, scheduling conflicts
in college football forced the change.
The Bronko Nagurski Trophy is rewarded to the best defensive
player in college football each year. The FWAA has named a best
defensive player annually since 1993.
The Football Writers Association of America will select five
finalists for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy in late November. Those
five finalists will be invited to Charlotte for the banquet and
announcement of the winner.
