Two Big Ten players are among the 10 finalists for the Lowe's Senior CLASS award, given to a senior at an FBS program who excels in the following four areas: community, classroom, character and competition.
Who are the Big Ten finalists? Odds are, you've heard of them.
It's nice to see that two of the Big Ten's more high-profile players also are excelling off of the field. Cousins' speaking appearances and volunteer work in the pediatric ward at a local hospital are well documented, and Persa also has been very active in community service at Northwestern.
