Sam Darnold, Lamar Jackson selected to Walter Camp watch list


The Walter Camp Player of the Year Award released its preseason watch list on Friday and the reigning winner of the award, Louisville's Lamar Jackson, is among the headliners in the 40-player field.

Jackson received the honor in 2016 and will try to join Colt McCoy, Archie Griffin and O.J. Simpson as the only players to win the award in consecutive years.

Alabama led all schools with four representatives on the list, and Ohio State had the second-strongest representation with three.

A quarterback has won the award in seven of the past nine years, so QBs like Sam Darnold (USC) figure to be among Jackson's stiffest competition for the honor. Recent recipients of the award include Marcus Mariota (2014), Jameis Winston (2013), Andrew Luck (2011) and Cam Newton (2010).

The winner of the award will be announced on Dec. 7.
