Cyclones Kempt named to Davey O’Brien watch list

By Justin Webster | Jul 17, 2018

The Davey O’Brien Foundation unveiled the names of 26 quarterbacks on the 2018 Davey O’Brien Award watch list.

The players were chosen based on performance during the 2017 season and the expectations for their play in 2018. Nominees must have started one game for their current team in the previous season, and any player who was a finalist or semifinalist in 2017 automatically was included.

Among the players on the watch list, 13 are seniors, 12 are juniors and one is a sophomore.

The Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award is given each year to the nation’s best college quarterback. The winner will be announced on Dec. 6 and Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma won last year.
