Moye, Royster, Crawford Named To Watch Lists

A slew of college football award watchlists were released yesterday, and Penn State was well represented.

Derek Moye was named to the Biletnikoff Award watch  list for the nation's top receiver. He is one of seven Big Ten receivers to be nominated for the award.

Moye has quietly become a big threat in the Penn State passing game, and it's nice to see him get some recognition. He should be a big, tall safety blanket for whatever young quarterback emerges from the pack to take the job. Moye had 48 catches for 785 yards and six touchdowns in 2009.

Jack Crawford was named to the Chuck Bednarik Award watch list for the country's best defensive player. Crawford had five sacks in his sophomore season and will be a big piece of Larry Johnson's defensive line in 2010 following the departure of Jared Odrick.

And of course, who else by Evan Royster is in line to take home some hardware after being named to the Walter Camp and Maxwell Award watch lists. Both awards are for the player of the year in college football as voted on by their respective foundations. Royster rushed for over 1,100 yards in 2009, and as has been talked about exhaustively, is close to breaking Curt Warner's record for career rushing yards at Penn State.

Obviously a nice haul for the Lions.  Nice to see Moye and Crawford especially get some recognition for their hard work.
