Duke University football coach David Cutcliffe will receive the Stallings Award tonight during a ceremony at Dallas Country Club.
Cutcliffe just completed his sixth season at Duke, where he led the Blue Devils to an ACC Coastal Division championship and a school-record 10 wins. Duke fell to Texas A&M in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.
The award, now in its third year, is intended to recognize college football head coaches for their humanitarian efforts and their dedication to promoting healthy and vibrant communities. It is named after former college and NFL coach Gene Stallings, with proceeds benefiting The Rise School of Dallas, a nonprofit preschool for children with developmental disabilities.
