Pac-10 Players on College Football Awards Preseason Watch Lists

By Dave Consolazio, August 29, 2009 4:23 am

Before every college football season, a series of watch lists are released to let fans know who the award committees will be closely following for each of college football’s awards. With outstanding play, a player not on the preseason watch list can still go on to win the award. The preseason watch list is just a good indication of which players are considered the early favorites to win the award.

Listed below are all of the Pac-10 players who were included on the national lists. The only two awards not listed are the Heisman Trophy and the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award. The Heisman Trophy does not release a preseason watch list, and the Unitas Award, which is handed out to the nation’s best senior college quarterback, had no Pac-10 players on their watch list.

Congratulations to the players named, and good luck taking home the hardware!

Pac-10 Position Breakdown: Wide Receiver – USC Trojans

By Sam Saig, August 2, 2009 11:52 am

Like every other position, USC is rich with talent and depth at wide receiver and tight end. The Trojans return every major contributor from 2008 with the exception of Patrick Turner (now with the Miami Dolphins). New offensive coordinator Jeremy Bates will have no excuses in his first season at SC; the skill position talent is as good as it has been in three years.

Head coach Pete Carroll always assembles a receiving corps full of blue-chippers, but this group seems especially potent.

The headliner of the unit is junior Damian Williams. Williams led all USC wideouts in 2008 with 58 receptions for 869 yards (15.0 YPC), and he finished second on the team with nine touchdowns. The former Arkansas transfer made a big impact in his debut season with the Trojans last year, quickly establishing chemistry with Mark Sanchez and becoming the most reliable option in the passing game. Williams ended the season with a masterful performance in the Rose Bowl, abusing the Penn State secondary for 162 yards and one TD on 10 catches.

In one year, he transformed from promising prospect to one of the best receivers in the country.
