University of Maine football standout Brian Harvey has been named a semi-finalist for the National Football Foundation’s William V. Campbell Trophy, given to college football’s best scholar-athlete, and also was named a candidate for the organization’s National Scholar-Athlete Awards. A senior place-kicker from Wayland, Mass., Harvey’s 39-yard field goal in overtime beat New Hampshire in 2010 while a 34-yard field goal he made last year with less than a minute remaining at James Madison put the game into overtime. Harvey received his degree with a double major in marketing and management from UMaine in May and is currently pursuing a master’s degree in business administration. He is a silver medallion Maine Scholar-Athlete Award winner and was named to the CAA Football All-Academic Team last season.
