Paul Hornung preseason watch list released

Just another sign that the 2013 college football season is edging ever so closer.

The Paul Hornung preseason watch list was released today with 44 candidates spanning all 10 conferences in major college football. The award is given annually to the most versatile player in major college football. Last season’s winner was West Virginia’s Tavon Austin.

Three finalists from last season made this year’s watch list: Antonio Andrews (Western Kentucky), Dri Archer (Kent State) and Marqise Lee (USC). As far as conference representation goes, the SEC leads all with nine players followed by the ACC with six players. There are five players from both the Big Ten and Big 12.

Below is this year’s watch list, though being named to the watch list is not a necessity for being named the winner. The award itself will be handed out in late January, 2014 after the season.

    If Louis Nix gets QB time, he should win.

    It’s okay to use USC instead of the much lengthier Southern California. No matter what they claim in that state south of North Carolina the real USC is on the west coast.
