Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein has been named a candidate for the Senior CLASS Award, a prize which "honors a student-athlete that is a senior at a NCAA Division I FBS school and has notable achievements in four areas of excellence - community, classroom, character and competition" according to the organization.
He is one of 30 players nominated for the award. The list will be whittled down to 10 players around midseason before the official ballot comes out at the end of the year.
The Wildcats quarterback has put up impressive numbers early into the season, tossing 609 yards and five touchdowns so far. Klein will lead the Wildcats against the Oklahoma Sooners on Saturday.
