Murray On Camp Watch List


DSC_7404Quarterback Aaron Murray has been named to the Walter Camp Player of the Year Watch List, according to an announcement by the Walter Camp Football Foundation on Monday.

The watch list, which is made up of six players from the Southeastern Conference and 40 players overall, will be narrowed to 10 semi-finalists in mid-November. The 2011 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, voted on by the 120 NCAA Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors, will be announced live on ESPN Sports Center on Thursday, December 8.

The winner will then receive his trophy at the Foundation’s annual national awards banquet on January 14, 2012 at the Yale University Commons in New Haven.

Murray, a native of Tampa, Fla., was tabbed a Freshman All-American following last season when he set a UGA freshman record with 3,049 passing yards, which ranks second in SEC history for freshmen. Murray's passing efficiency of 154.48 was also the best in the country among all freshmen quarterbacks and second best in school history among all quarterbacks.

Murray has already been named to the watch lists for the Maxwell Award, Davey O’Brien Award and the College Football Performance Awards-Quarterbacks.
