Miami football: Braxton Berrios named Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award semifinalist

Miami senior wide receiver Braxton Berrios is having a solid season. He’s hauled 36 passes for 474 yards and 7 touchdowns. He’s scored in every game he’s played in except for two.

But his off-the-field reputation is pristine. Berrios was named a semifinalist for the Jason Witten Collegiate Man of the Year Award on Tuesday. As you can see, he has some stiff competition on this list – including Jake Olson, the blind long snapper from USC.

Berrios is one of three ACC players to be named a semifinalist. The others are Zaire Franklin (Syracuse) and Micah Kiser (Virginia).

Per its website, the award is “Presented annually to the Division I college football player who has demonstrated a record of leadership by exhibiting exceptional courage, integrity and sportsmanship both on and off the field. The award honors the type of exemplary character and commitment to community, family and teammates demonstrated by Jason Witten, the 2012 NFL Walter Payton Man of the Year and one of the most prominent role models in the game.”

A very nice honor for Berrios.
