Spiller Named to watch list
The Walter Camp Foundation will announce 10 semifinalists in November and the recipient will be announce on ESPN on December 10.
The winner will then receive his trophy at the Foundation¹s annual awards banquet on January 18, 2010 at the Yale University Commons in New Haven. The award was won by Texas quarterback Colt McCoy last year and he is among the 30 players on the preseason list this year. Each of the 119 Division I coaches and each of the Division I sports information directors vote on the award.
Spiller and Georgia Tech running back Jonathan Dwyer are the only two ACC players on the list. Those two players will meet on the same field in Atlanta on September 10 when Clemson faces Georgia Tech in a nationally televised Thursday night game on ESPN.
Spiller was a first-team All-ACC kick returner and second-team All-ACC running back last year when he had 1065 yards from scrimmage. He led the ACC in all-purpose running with 1770 yards and needs just 921 all-purpose yards this year to become the ACC's career leader. He is already the Clemson career record holder in that area with 4,908.
Spiller holds 12 Clemson records, including most touchdowns of 50 yards or more (12) and most touchdowns of 80 yards or more (seven). He ranks ninth in Clemson history in career rushing yards with 2335. As a receiver he needs just 13 receptions to become the second running back in school history with at least 100 receptions.
Spiller and Dwyer were both named to the Doak Walker Award preseason watch list earlier in the week.
