K-State's Klein a Camp Award finalist

By David Ubben

Kansas State quarterback Collin Klein is one of five finalists for the Walter Camp Award, given annually to college football's best player.

He's the lone Big 12 representative, and joined by Texas A&M QB Johnny Manziel, Oregon RB Kenjon Barner, Notre Dame LB Manti Te'o and USC receiver Marqise Lee.

Klein joined Manziel and Te'o as Heisman finalists after accounting for 37 touchdowns, including a Big 12-best 22 rushing scores and leading Kansas State to an 11-1 record and the school's first Big 12 title since 2003.

Texas' Colt McCoy won the award in 2008 and 2009. Stanford's Andrew Luck won last year. The award is voted on by coaches and sports information directors from around the nation.
