Biere, Mayfield win KU’s Bob Frederick Award

Athletes honored at Senior Awards dinner

April 30, 2012


Kansas University dual-sport athlete Allison Mayfield and football player Tim Biere were named winners of KU's Bob Frederick Senior Scholar Athlete of the Year Awards Sunday in Allen Fieldhouse.

Mayfield, a four-year starter for KU volleyball, left the program as one of the top outside hitters in program history.

The Overland Park native joined the KU track and field squad as a high jumper and javelin thrower in the winter of 2012. Mayfield is No. 3 on the all-time school high jump list, while ranking in the Big 12's top-10 in the javelin midway through the outdoor season.

Mayfield was named Academic All-Big 12 First Team three times and was named to the CoSida Capital One Academic All-District Team.

Biere was one of four team captains for the KU football team in 2011, playing in 11 of 12 games during his senior season. Biere's 29.3 receiving yards per game earned him a spot on the All-Big 12 honorable mention list. The Omaha native also made the Academic All-Big 12 first team in 2009 as well as the Big 12 Commissioner's and KU Athletic Director's honor rolls each year he was eligible.
