Several Gators Named to Watch Lists

Four University of Florida football players were named to watch lists by the Maxwell Football Club Monday as Andre Caldwell (Sr., WR), Tim Tebow (So., QB) and Percy Harvin (So., WR) were among those on the list for the 71st Maxwell Award, while Derrick Harvey (Jr., DE) was named to the list for the 13th Chuck Bednarik Award.

The Maxwell Award has been presented to the outstanding collegiate football player in America since 1937 and is named in honor of Robert W. "Tiny" Maxwell. The Chuck Bednarik Award has been presented since 1995 and is named in honor of Chuck Bednarik, a former University of Pennsylvania and Philadelphia Eagles great. Bednarik is a member of both the College Football Hall of Fame '69 and the NFL Hall of Fame '67.

Each list is comprised of 65 players who were selected based on their performance during the 2006 season.

Semifinalists for the Maxwell and Bednarik Awards will be announced in early November and three finalists for each award will be announced November 26th. The winners of the 2007 Maxwell and Bednarik Awards will be announced as part of the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show on December 6, 2007. The formal presentation of these awards will be made at the Maxwell Football Club Awards Gala hosted by Harrah's Entertainment Atlantic City in March 2008.

The watch list candidates have been chosen by the Maxwell Football Club's Selection Committee and the Maxwell Club reserves the right to make additions and subtractions to these lists as the 2007 season unfolds. All members of the Maxwell Football Club, NCAA Sports Information Directors, Head Coaches and selected national media are eligible to vote for these awards.
