The C Spire Conerly Trophy
Posted on: March 30,2019
The C Spire Conerly Trophy is presented annually to the Magnolia state’s top collegiate football player.
The award is named in honor of the late Hall of Famer Charlie Conerly, former Ole Miss and New York Giants quarterback. Conerly, a Clarksdale native, was an All-American at Ole Miss and a Pro Bowl stand-out for the Giants who led New York to three NFL Championship games and one NFL Championship.
The honor is announced each year during a banquet and program on the Tuesday night following Thanksgiving. Since its inception in 1996, winners have gone on to excel in the NFL and two have even been inducted into the Mississippi Sports Hall of Fame (Deuce McAllister and Patrick Willis). See the photo gallery below featuring the previous C Spire Conerly Winners.
The 2022 C Spire Conerly Trophy will be presented during the banquet and presentation on November 29th at the Country Club of Jackson. Tickets are on sale now.
