Oklahoma State linebacker Shaun Lewis is a finalist for the Bobby Bowden Award, an honor given by the Fellowship of Christian Athletes for a college football player who epitomizes the term student-athlete.

Requirements for the award include conducting oneself as a faith model in the classroom, on the field on the campus and in the community. The player also must have the backing of the school’s athletic director and head coach.

The other finalists are Mississippi punter Tyler Campbell, Arizona linebacker Jake Fischer, Oklahoma offensive lineman Gabe Ikard, Texas A&M offensive lineman Jake Matthews and Alabama receiver Kevin Norwood. The winner will be announced at the FCA Bowl Championship Breakfast in Irvine, Calif., on Jan. 3.

Former OSU tight end Billy Bajema won the award in 2004.
