Newton native McCallum Foote made the list of finalists for the Gagliardi Trophy - the equivalent of the Heisman Trophy for NCAA Div. III - awarded to the most outstanding football player.

Foote, who went to high school at Noble & Greenough, excelled during his senior year at Middlebury College. He led the NESCAC in passing yards (2,766), touchdown passes (26), and completions per game (32.38). He also leads the nation in completions per game and is second in all of Div. III in passing yards per game (345.8), according to an announcement from Middlebury.

The trophy will be presented on Wednesday, Dec. 18, in Salem, Va., at a banquet kicking-off a series of Div. III Stagg Bowl championship events. The other finalists are junior quarterback Kevin Burke from Mount Union (Ohio), senior linebacker Cole Klotz from Wisconsin-Whitewater and senior running back Octavias McKoy from Western Connecticut State.
