South Florida’s Quinton Flowers is this week’s nominee for the 2016 Capital One Orange Bowl-FWAA Courage Award. Flowers’ father was shot and killed by a stray bullet outside his home when Flowers was 7. His mother died of cancer when he was in high school. In November of 2014, Flowers’ older brother was shot and killed while playing football with kids — the same week Flowers was named the Bulls’ starting quarterback for the first time.
