WLWL: QB Daniels makes O'Brien preseason list
Another entry in the Watch List Watch List, as USF senior quarterback B.J. Daniels is one of 34 quarterbacks who have been named to the preseason list for the Davey O'Brien List, given each year to the nation's top college quarterback.
Daniels is one of two Big East passers on the list, along with Louisville sophomore Teddy Bridgewater -- there's been good debate all summer as to who should be the first-team All-Big East quarterback entering the season. Daniels is also one of just two QBs from Florida schools on the list, along with Florida State's E.J. Manuel.
We should also mention that senior guard Danous Estenor is one of 117 players nationally in consideration for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, one of the top off-field honors in college football. Estenor was profiled last summer in a Times story, detailing his heroic efforts to lift a car in a campus parking lot and help save a man who was trapped underneath it.
If you're scoring at home, that's now five USF players on watch lists -- defensive end Ryne Giddins and linebacker DeDe Lattimore for the Lombardi, tackle Mark Popek for the Outland and kicker Maikon Bonani for the Groza.
