Michigan State senior cornerback Dominique Long has been nominated for the William V. Campbell Trophy, which is awarded annually by the National Football Foundation to the nation’s top scholar-athlete. The award is considered by many to be the “Academic Heisman.”

A mechanical engineering major, Long has compiled a 3.61 grade-point average entering his senior year. The two-time Academic All-Big Ten selection and three-year letterwinner has played in 37 games during his career with 38 tackles, one pass break-up and one blocked punt.

Michigan State has had three Campbell Trophy finalists in the past nine years (Kirk Cousins, Max Bullough, Mike Sadler) and eight semifinalists (Cousins, Bullough, Sadler, Jack Allen, Josiah Price, Brian Allen, Khari Willis, Cole Chewins).
