Brian Harvey Named a Semifinalist for NFF Scholar-Athlete Awards
ORONO, Maine – University of Maine football standout Brian Harvey has been named a semifinalist for the National Football Foundation's William V. Campbell Trophy, given to college football's best scholar-athlete, and was also named a candidate for the organization's National Scholar-Athlete Awards.
Harvey, a senior place kicker from Wayland, Mass., has been a steady force for the Black Bears during his tenure. Among his performances, his 39-yard field goal in overtime beat New Hampshire in 2010 while a 34-yard field goal he made last year with under a minute remaining at James Madison put the game into overtime where the Black Bears won.
Off the field, Harvey received his degree with a double major in marketing and management from Maine in May and is currently pursuing a master's degree in business administration. He is a silver medallion Maine Scholar-Athlete Award winner and was named to the CAA Football All-Academic Team last season.
Harvey and the Black Bears host Villanova on Saturday in Maine's CAA opener at Alfond Stadium. Kickoff is at 3:30 p.m.
