Bryce Wolma has appeared in 45 games during his Arizona Wildcats career, more than any other active player. He’s done that while also maintaining a 3.49 GPA studying business management and serving on the UA’s Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.

All of that work has led to Wolma making the cut for a prestigious national award.

Wolma, a senior tight end, is one of 176 semifinalists for the William V. Campbell Trophy, given annually to college football’s top scholar-athlete.

Nominated by Arizona, Wolma is one of 79 nominees from the FBS level. Between 12 and 14 finalists will be announced later this year, opening the door for postgraduate scholarship opportunities.

Wolma, who was also on the preseason watch list for the Mackey Award given to the nation’s top tight end, has caught five passes for 36 yards this season including an 11-yard touchdown catch in last Saturday’s loss at Oregon. For his career Wolma has 47 receptions and four TDs.
