Aaron Murray has been named a semifinalist for the 2013 Maxwell Award, Maxwell Football Club President Ron Jaworski announced today. The Maxwell Award is given to the collegiate player of the year.

Three finalists for the Maxwell Award will be announced on November 25, 2013. After a second round of voting, the winner of the 77th Maxwell Award will be announced on the Home Depot College Football Awards Show on ESPN on December 12, 2013.

Aaron Murray has completed 139-of-224 passes for 1,938 yards and 17 touchdowns this season. He has also rushed 32 times for 150 yards and five touchdowns.

If Murray were to win the Maxwell Award, he would be only the third Bulldog ever. Charley Trippi won the award in 1946 and Herschel Walker took home the prize in 1982.
