NORMAN, Okla. (AP) – University of Oklahoma center Ty Darlington has been awarded the Wuerffel Trophy for community service by a college football player.

Darlington received the award Tuesday in New York. The trophy is named after former Heisman Trophy winner Danny Wuerffel, who led Florida to the 1996 national championship, played six years in the NFL and has received national recognition for his humanitarian and community service efforts.

Darlington has served on various student-athlete advisory committees and was president of the OU Fellowship of Christian Athletes. He also helped lead OU football volunteer efforts to help after tornadoes struck Oklahoma in May 2013, has traveled to Haiti to help with earthquake damage relief, volunteered at Oklahoma Children’s Hospital events and has been a volunteer football coach at Apopka High School.
