Five from Big 12 on Camp Award list
By David Ubben
Five Big 12 players are on the 50-man watch list for the Walter Camp Award, given annually to college football's best player.
- John Hubert, RB, Kansas State
- Jackson Jeffcoat, DE, Texas
- Casey Pachall, QB, TCU
- Lache Seastrunk, RB, Baylor
- Jason Verrett, DB, TCU
TCU has to be happy getting two players on the list, but I'm surprised to see TCU defensive end Devonte Fields and Kansas running back James Sims omitted.
The watch list will be narrowed to 10 in November. Manti Te'o won the award last season, and Texas' Colt McCoy did it twice, in 2008 and 2009. He was the last player from the Big 12 to win the trophy.
