As the 2011 college football season approaches, the watch lists for most of the major awards have been announced. Eight different Nebraska players have been named to the watch lists for 11 of the awards.
Obviously while not all of the Husker players on the watch lists will win their respective awards, in many instances it is an honor just to be looked at as one of the best players at a given position heading into the football season.
Jared Crick received the most mentions of any Nebraska player, as would be expected, followed closely by Lavonte David. However, there were some surprises on the various lists also as you will see.
I do believe this to be a complete list of Husker players named to award watch lists thus far, however if I have missed any please let me know and I will edit the article accordingly.
