III's Outstanding Football Player of the Year, twice earning first-team All-American honors (1999-00), twice receiving the Hank Critchfield Award as the conference Defensive Player of the Year (1999-00), and becoming the fourth player in conference history to earn first-team honors all four years (1997-00).

A native of Bolivar, Ohio, Duerr graduated from Tuscarawas Valley High School in 1996 and holds a bachelor's degree in biochemistry from Wooster as well as a master's degree in teaching from Averett.
