Another day, another Penn State player recognized among the nation's best.

To the surprise of few, junior wide receiver Chris Godwin has been named to the watch list for the Biletnikoff Award, given annually to the best pass-catcher in college football.

Godwin enjoyed a remarkable breakout season as a true sophomore in 2015, collecting 69 catches for 1,101 receiving yards and five touchdowns. He was only the third player in program history to reach the 1,000- receiving yards milestone, joining Penn State greats Bobby Engram and Allen Robinson. Engram is the only Nittany Lion to receive the Biletnikoff Award during Penn State's undefeated 1994 squad that featured one of the best offenses in college football history.

Godwin recently joined running back Saquon Barkley on the Maxwell Award watch list, given annually to the best player in college football.

Is it September 3 yet?? Congratulations and best of luck, Chris!
