Wolf named national finalist for Hill award

MANKATO — Minnesota State senior quarterback Jon Wolf has been named one of nine national finalists for the Harlon Hill Award.

The Harlon Hill Award is given annually to the player selected as the top performer in NCAA Division II.

The field of 28 regional finalists has been trimmed to nine, with five quarterbacks and four running backs. The national voting will conclude on Dec. 7, and the top three finishers will be invited to presentation banquet Dec. 20.

Wolf is the third Mavericks' player to be named a national finalist for the Harlon Hill. Receiver Josh Nelson finished seventh in the voting in 1994, and quarterback Jamie Pass finished third in 1993.

Wolf has completed 104 of 164 passes for 1,719 yards and 15 touchdowns, and he's also rushed for 1,047 rushing yards and 13 touchdowns.

The other finalists are quarterback Luke Charles of North Carolina-Pembroke, running back Glen Clinton of Chadron State, quarterback Bo Cordell of Tusculum, running back Frankly Quiteh of Bloomsburg, quarterback Kevin Rodgers of Henderson State, running back Tyler Tonderum of Southwest Minnesota State, quarterback Dustin Vaughan of West Texas A&M and running back Rondell White of West Chester.

The Mavericks host St. Cloud State in the second round of the NCAA playoffs Saturday. The kickoff is set for noon.

Minnesota Duluth plays at Northwest Missouri State in the other regional semifinal Saturday. The two winners play for the regional championship the following week at the site of the highest seed.
