DURHAM, N.C. - Duke redshirt senior quarterback Sean Renfree has been selected as a candidate for the 2012 Senior CLASS Award, as announced on Thursday by the CLASS Award selection committee.
To be eligible for the award, a student-athlete must be classified as an NCAA Division I FBS senior and have notable achievements in four areas of excellence - community, classroom, character and competition. An acronym for Celebrating Loyalty and Achievement for Staying in School®, the Senior CLASS Award focuses on the total student-athlete and encourages students to use their platform in athletics to make a positive impact as leaders in their communities.
In addition to his accomplishments on the field, Renfree is active in the Durham community and was recently named one of only 22 Division I football players on the 2012 AFCA Good Works Team. Among his projects are the Duke Children's Hospital, Ronald McDonald House Charities, Read with the Blue Devils, Durham Rescue Mission, the MLK "Million Meals" Event and Active Teens.
Renfree is a three-year starter for the Blue Devils who this season has completed 73-of-103 passes for 764 yards and five touchdowns in three games. He leads the ACC in pass completions and ranks third in both completion percentage (.709) and passing yards per game (254.7). A graduate student with a focus in humanities, he is also two-time member of the All-ACC Academic Football Team and a three-time honoree on the ACC Academic Honor Roll.
Renfree and the Blue Devils host Memphis on Saturday, Sept. 22, at 6 p.m. in Wallace Wade Stadium.
