The trophy, named for former Florida quarterback Danny Wuerffel, is "College Football’s Premier Award for Community Service," and is presented annually by the All Sports Association in Fort Walton Beach Florida.
Semifinalists for the award will be announced on Nov. 3 and finalists will be announced on Nov. 23. The formal announcement of the 2016 recipient will be made De. 6 at the National Football Foundation’s press conference in New York City.
Price is also a candidate for the John Mackey award given to the sport's top tight end, and was on the Wuerffel watch list last season. He caught 66 passes for 851 yards and 16 touchdowns in 2015. Off the field, Price is a three-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and serves on Michigan State's Student-Athlete Advisory Committee.
