Luke Falk wins Burlsworth Award over Mayfield

The Associated Press - December 5, 2017 10:47 am

SPRINGDALE, Ark. (AP) – Washington State quarterback Luke Falk has topped Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield to win the Burlsworth Award, given annually to the top college football player who began his career as a walk-on.

Falk had finished behind two-time winner Mayfield in each of the last two years, but he won during his third time as a finalist – coming off a season in which the senior threw for 3,593 yards and 30 touchdowns for the Cougars (9-3).

The award is named for former Arkansas offensive lineman Brandon Burlsworth, who died in a car accident shortly after being drafted by the Indianapolis Colts.
