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 – Oregon Ducks

By Sam Saig, July 22, 2009 9:41 am

With proven all-conference talent at quarterback and running back, Oregon must now find stability at wide receiver. It has been a very busy offseason at the position with the program losing four wideouts.

Primary 2008 contributors Terence Scott and Jaison Williams are gone to graduation (combined 3,301 yards and 26 TD’s for their careers). Promising young receivers Chris Harper and Aaron Pflugrad have decided to transfer to other schools (Kansas State and Arizona State, respectively).

Despite losing all of that production and potential, head coach Chip Kelly still has plenty to like about the Ducks wideouts in 2009. The receiving unit will be greatly aided by some of the most athletic tight ends in the Pac-10, including an accomplished senior that is one of America’s best at the position.

One wide receiver that figures to get more of the spotlight after all of the off-season shuffling is junior Jeff Maehl. Only a couple of years ago, Maehl was playing as a reserve in the defensive secondary before switching to wideout. He had an excellent 2008 campaign at WR, catching 39 passes for 421 yards while also tying for the team lead in TD catches with five. He started every game of the season in 2008 for Oregon.
