  • 2015 Senior CLASS Award Candidates

    BOISE, Idaho – Senior wide receiver Shane Williams-Rhodes was named a candidate for the Senior CLASS Award, it was announced Thursday.

    The announcement marks the fifth award watch list to which Williams-Rhodes has been named this season. Over the past two months, the Bronco senior has been named a candidate for the Paul Hornung Award, Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award, Wuerffel Trophy and the Allstate AFCA Good Hands Team.

    Williams-Rhodes is one of 30 FBS candidates for the Senior CLASS Award, given annually to an NCAA Division I FBS senior with notable achievements in four areas of excellence: community, classroom, character and competition.

    The 30 candidates will be narrowed to 10 finalists midway through the regular season, and those 10 names will be placed on the official ballot. Ballots will be distributed through a nationwide voting system to media, coaches and fans, who will select one candidate who best exemplifies excellence in the four Cs of community, classroom, character and competition. The Senior CLASS Award winner will be announced during the football bowl season in early January.

    Williams-Rhodes sits fifth all-time at Boise State with 172 career receptions, needing 73 to eclipse Matt Miller’s (2011-14) school record of 244. He is a two-time All-Mountain West honorable mention (2013-14), and in last week’s win over Washington caught a pair of passes for 16 yards.
