Kansas football player Sam Burt reacts to the Wuerffel Trophy

LAWRENCE — Kansas football coach Lance Leipold has talked about the selflessness of Sam Burt and Jalon Daniels before, and he said it again Tuesday.

Leipold pointed to Daniels’ decision to redshirt 2021 so the quarterback could play the final three games of the season and help build momentum heading into 2022. Leipold also noted Burt’s decision to use a red jersey year in 2021 after suffering. an injury earlier that season, so the defensive lineman could be part of the second chapter of Leipold’s rebuild.

In those choices, Leipold saw how dedicated the two were to the program, their teammates and their community.
