EKU's Swafford to receive Doris Robinson Award

(STATS) - To say sports has taught Tyler Swafford teamwork, sportsmanship and drive is an understatement. Especially when his life's work may be to stand up for the most vulnerable and foster freedom and democracy in places where they are fragile.

The Eastern Kentucky University quarterback, who aspires to be a human rights attorney, was announced Tuesday as the 2016 recipient of the STATS FCS Doris Robinson Scholar-Athlete Award. Named after the wife of legendary Grambling State coach Eddie Robinson, the award is presented to an FCS student-athlete who excels not only in the classroom, but in the community and beyond.

Swafford will be honored at the STATS FCS Awards Banquet and Presentation Jan. 6 in Frisco, Texas - on the eve of the national championship game.
