Sooners Dominate Nagurski Watch List
NORMAN, Okla. - The Charlotte Touchdown Club and the Football Writers
Association of America have announced 36 college football players on the preseason watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Award. The Nagurski Award recognizes the nation's top defensive player.
The four Sooners include FS Brandon Everage, DT Tommie Harris, LB Teddy
Lehman and cornerback Derrick Strait.
With four players on the list, OU easily outdistanced the other schools. Four other schools had two named to the list.
