Tebow, Harvin named to Walter Camp Watch List
Percy Harvin's heel may still be hampering him in preseason practice, but that apparently hasn't altered the national expectation for the kind of year Harvin could have.
The junior receiver and junior quarterback Tim Tebow were among 35 athletes named as “players to watch” for the Walter Camp Football Foundation Player of the Year award, announced today.
It is the nation’s fourth-oldest individual college football accolade, which recognizes the best college football player in the nation.
Tebow is one of five players on the watch list that were named to last
year’s Walter Camp All-America First Team.
The watch list will be narrowed to 15 semi-finalists in early November.
The 2008 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, which is voted on by the 119 NCAA Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information
directors, will be announced on the ESPN/Home Depot College Football
Awards Show in December.
