Renfree honored as Pop Warner National College Football Award winner

Posted November 20, 2012

Duke quarterback Sean Renfree was named the winner of the Pop Warner National College Football Award Tuesday, an honor given to the college player that best portrays Pop Warner ideals and serves as a role model.

Renfree is a three-year starter at Duke and a two-year captain who graduated in Dec. 2011 with a degree in public policy and is currently seeking a master’s degree in humanities while holding a 3.76 GPA.

The signal-caller has guided the Blue Devils to their best season in nearly two decades this year and ranks in the top five in school history in passing yards, passing touchdowns, pass completions, completion percentage, passing efficiency and 300-yard passing games.

He is a two-time member of the All-ACC Academic Football Team and a four-time selection to the ACC Academic Honor Roll. Renfree was one of 11 athletes named to the 2012 AFCA Good Works Team for his community outreach, and will represent Duke at the Sugar Bowl.

“We created the Pop Warner National College Football Award to honor a student-athlete who serves as a positive role model for our young athletes,” said Jon Butler, executive director of Pop Warner Little Scholars. “We considered hundreds of tremendous athletes this year, and believe we have found an exceptional recipient in Sean Renfree. He is an outstanding athlete and team leader, accomplished student, and admirable young man.”

Renfree is the third winner of the award following Virginia’s Chase Minnifield and Nebraska’s Prince Amukamara. He will be recognized at this year’s Pop Warner Super Bowl on Dec. 5 at the ESPN Wide World of Sports Complex at Walt Disney World in Orlando, FL.

    This award couldn't have been given to anyone better than Renfree. He is a solid student-athlete. And, his exemplary standards in the classroom, and on the field are truly evident by winning this award. I had the honor of talking to him a few years ago in Pinehurst. Congratulations to Renfree.
