Morris Named to O'Brien Award Watch List

University of Miami senior quarterback Stephen Morris has been named to the Davey O'Brien Award Watch List, the school announced on Wednesday.

Stephen Morris had one of the best seasons ever by a Hurricane quarterback in 2012, and so it's no surprise that he was named to the preseason list for the Davey O'Brien Award.

One of 34 quarterbacks named to the list, Morris joins fellow ACC quarterbacks Tajh Boyd, Bryn Renner, and Logan Thomas on the list. He started every game for the Hurricanes last season and ended up throwing for 3,345 yards and 21 touchdowns.

Two former Hurricane quarterbacks have won the award in the past -- Vinny Testaverde in 1986 and Gino Torretta in 1991.

The winner will be announced Thursday, December 12th as part of the College Football Awards Show.
