The Walter Camp Award has become the backup award for players who have missed out on the Heisman. Rewarded each season to the college football Player of the Year since 1967, it is an honor to receive this award. Some of the select players who have won include O.J. Simpson, Marcus Allen, Eddie George and Cam Newton.
Notre Dame's Manti Te'o was granted the award last season.
This season, there are 50 players on the Walter Camp Award watch list that was released by The Walter Camp Football Foundation. The list represents 37 different schools and many players who received Walter Camp All-America honors last season.
Some of the top candidates include last year's Heisman winner, a pair of elite defensive ends and a barrel of quarterbacks.
