Recently graduated Northwest Missouri State quarterback Trevor Adams is among the finalists for the Ken B. Jones award, an all-encompassing honor given to top MIAA athletes.
A three-year starter at quarterback in a career that ended with a fourth Northwest national title, Adams finished with a 3.94 cumulative grade point average as a biology/psychology major.
On the field, the Odessa, Texas, native led Division II with a Northwest-record 73 percent completion rate last season, earning MIAA offensive player of the year honors in the process and finishing with 3,065 passing yards and 30 touchdown strikes.
Currently in chiropractic school in Dallas, Adams earned National Football Foundation Scholar Athlete acclaim, traveled to Haiti in conjunction with Christian Campus House and served as a huddle leader at Fellowship of Christian Athletes Acceleration Camps.
Ex-Pittsburg State linebacker Nate Dreiling -- set to workout with the Kansas City Chiefs at a rookie camp this weekend -- is also among the three men's nominees.
