There is no question that the Heisman Trophy is the most coveted individual award in all of college sports. However, there are still a number of other prizes handed out at the end of the college football season that are of great esteem.
One of these rewards is the Doak Walker Award, named for the 1948 Heisman Trophy winner of SMU and handed out to the top player at his position every December.
The award, which was won by Trent Richardson of Alabama last year, was first given to Washington’s Greg Lewis following his stellar 1990 campaign.
Southern Methodist University released a 52-player watch list for the Doak Walker about a month ago. In this slideshow, I will go over the running backs on that list that have the best chance of claiming the award at Disney World in early-December.
