aleX brInk - ara sPortsManshIP award

Former Washington State quarterback Alex Brink was the 2007 recipient of the ARA

Sportsmanship Award, presented annually by the Awards and Recognition Association. The

national award is presented each year to the NCAA Division I college football player who

most exemplifies sportsmanship on and off the field.

Brink was selected from 10 finalists representing schools across the country. Previous

winners of the award include Carolina Panthers running back DeAngelo Williams (Memphis)

and St. Louis Rams running back Brian Leonard (Rutgers).

Brink, who ended his career as WSU’s career record-holder in passing yards, touchdowns,

completions, attempts and total offense, was also one of 15 recipients of the National

Football Foundation Scholar-Athlete Award and a finalist for the Draddy Award, entitling

him to an $18,000 postgraduate scholarship. The Draddy Award annually recognizes an

individual as the absolute best in the country for his combined academic success, football

performance and exemplary community leadership.

Brink was a two-time finalist for the Wuerffel Trophy, which honors the college football

player who best combines exemplary community service with outstanding academic and

athletic achievement.
