Briscoe, Gubrud, Kupp invited to Payton Award announcement

(STATS) - Record-setting performances have been a constant this season for the three players who Tuesday were invited to the announcement of the 2016 STATS FCS Walter Payton Award.

Sam Houston State's Jeremiah Briscoe and Eastern Washington teammates Gage Gubrud and Cooper Kupp hope to claim what's known as the Heisman of the FCS level, an award that is in its 30th anniversary season and will be handed out at the STATS FCS Awards Banquet and Presentation in Frisco, Texas on Jan. 6 - the eve of the national championship game.

A national panel of over 150 sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers and other dignitaries voted on the Payton Award, which had 25 finalists from 13 FCS conferences. Briscoe and Gubrud are quarterbacks, while Kupp, last year's Payton recipient, is a wide receiver.
