Will Levis earned national recognition on Tuesday when he was named to the official Davey O’Brien QB Class of 2021. Levis’ inclusion means he is one of 16 semifinalists for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award, which will be given to college football’s best quarterback later this year.
To help Levis obtain the Davey O’Brien hardware, keep an eye on the @DaveyOBrien social media account on Instagram, Twitter and Facebook. The top five vote-getters on each of the three social media platforms will receive bonus committee votes on the final tally.
To participate in the Fan Vote, fans must like the original post with their favorite quarterback. Each round of the selection process (semifinalist, finalist and winner) will offer two one-week voting periods.
This is getting confusing. If you’re still with us, here is the full timeline for the Davey O’Brien Award season, per UK’s release.
