2012 Doak Walker Award Watch List: Navy's Gee Gee Greene Nominated

Navy Midshipmen running back Gee Gee Greene is one of 52 candidates on the 2012 Doak Walker Award preseason watch list. The award is given to the best running back in college football at the conclusion of every season, and Greene is expected to rack up a high volume of touches in Navy's run-heavy option offense.

In 2011, Greene rushed for 501 yards on 64 carries, both good for third on the team. With seniors Kriss Proctor and Alexander Teich gone, Greene should see more carries in 2012.

Montee Ball of Wisconsin returns to school after leading the nation in both rushing yards and scoring in 2011, and is one of the big favorites to win the award. South Carolina's Marcus Lattimore will be a contender as well if he can stay healthy, along with Nebraska's Rex Burkhead and Arkansas' Knile Davis. Trent Richardson, the No. 3 overall pick in the 2012 NFL Draft, won last year's award.


2012 Outland Trophy Watch List: Maryland, Virginia, and Virginia Tech Represented

Both of the Virginia Cavaliers' starting offensive tackles are represented on the 2012 Outland Trophy watch list, which consists of 71 total players. Oday Aboushi and Morgan Moses both made the watch list for the award that's handed out at the end of the season to the best lineman in the country, offensive or defensive.

Last year's winner was Alabama's Barrett Jones, who returned to school and will have a chance to become the second player to ever win the trophy in back-to-back years. He's made the transition from offensive tackle to center for the 2012 season.

Virginia Tech center Andrew Miller made the watch list, along with Maryland defensive tackle Joe Vellano.
