On Thursday afternoon, Wisconsin Badgers senior safety Madison Cone was one of 114 players selected to the Wuerffel Trophy watch list. According to the award’s website:

The Wuerffel Trophy, known as “College Football’s Premier Award for Community Service,” is presented each February in Fort Walton Beach. Named after 1996 Heisman Trophy winning quarterback from the University of Florida, Danny Wuerffel, the Wuerffel Trophy exists to honor college football players who serve others, celebrate their positive impact on society, and inspire greater service in the world.

Cone was also recently named as one of Wisconsin’s representatives to the Anti-Hate and Anti-Racism Coalition that the B1G conference formed.

Cone has bounced around during his time in Madison, starting at cornerback before finally settling in at safety. For his career, Cone has recorded 27 tackles, four passes defended and two interceptions while being a valuable depth piece in the secondary for defensive coordinator Jim Leonhard.
