Jacobs, the founder and president of Presbyterian College from 1935 to 1945. The trophies are awarded by his sons, Hugh and William Jacobs, based upon voting of the respective leagues' coaches. The award was originally presented to a player from the state of South Carolina from 1928 to 1932. A duplicate award was created and given to a player in the Southern Conference (SoCon) beginning in 1933. The Southeastern Conference (SEC) began the award in 1935.
