Football – Seniors added to watch lists for national awards
The 2011 season is more than 40 days away, but senior quarterback Case Keenum is already under consideration as one of the nation’s best players.
He claimed a place on the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award Watch List on Monday. Three days prior, Keenum earned a spot on the Davey O’Brien Award watch list.
The Walter Camp Award is voted upon by the 120 head football coaches and sports information directors from each school.
The O’Brien Award is given to the best quarterback in the country. Keenum was one of three finalists for the award in 2009.
Senior Bryce Beall is in the company of the nation’s best running backs, being named to the Doak Walker Award watch list.
He is 850 yards away from surpassing Ketric Sanford as the all-time UH leading rusher.
