Auburn, Ala. (EETV) - Daniel Carlson was named to the list of 30 NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision student-athletes who excel both on and off the field as candidates for the 2017 senior CLASS award in collegiate football. 

To be eligible for the award, the athlete must be classified as a NCAA Division I and have achievements in four areas of excellence: classroom, community, character, and competition.

All candidates have been consistently involved in community service on their campus or in their communities. 

The final Senior CLASS Award winner will be determined by narrowing down the 30 candidates to 10 finalist midway through the regular season.

Along with the winner, the 10 finalists will be awarded Senior CLASS Award first- or second-team honors.

The Senior Class winner will be announced during the football bowl season in early January.
