Kellen Moore's Award Show Trip Blog
Kellen Moore completed his first day at the ESPN College Football Awards Show on Wednesday doing what a lot of college students do, hanging out and talking football. The only difference for Kellen was he did it with some of the top players in college football.

After catching an early morning flight from Boise, Kellen arrived to clear and cool skies in Orlando, Florida. After checking into the hotel he was off for several media events.

The first was with's Joe Schad who asked several questions in a video shoot which are to be included into tonight's awards show. The show will be broadcast live on ESPN starting at 7:00 p.m. (ET) at Disney World's Atlantic Dance Hall.

Kellen then spent about 30 minutes being interviewed by several media members from around the county attending the event. He finished up his media duties with a 10-minute interview with an interview on ESPN Radio with Doug Gottlieb.

With his media duties complete for the day, Kellen was then able to relax with the other award finalists at the ESPN Club at Disney World. The finalists were able to just kick back, play video games and visit.

Kellen is a finalist for the Maxwell Award (outstanding all-around player) and the Davey O'Brien Award (outstanding quarterback). Kellen had met one of the finalist, Andrew Luck of Stanford, last summer at the Peyton Manning Passing Academy, but this was the first time he was able to meet the other finalist - Cam Newton of Auburn. The three were also able to visit with former Davey O'Brien winner Doug Flutie who will present the award later today.

The three will be spending the next several days together, along with Oregon running back LaMichael James. Following tonight's awards show, all four will leave Friday (Dec. 10) morning for New York City for two days of activities surrounding the Heisman Trophy award presentation on Saturday (Dec. 11) night.

Today Kellen has a roundtable discussion about college football with several other finalists with ESPN's Tom Rinaldi, before taping an ESPN video shoot. He'll have some down time in the afternoon before attending the ESPNU Red Carpet Show at 6:00 p.m., followed by the Home Depot College Football Awards show.
