Quizz named to Doak Walker watch list

WHAT IS ONE thing that Ken Simonton, Steven Jackson, Yvenson Bernard and now Jacquizz Rodgers have in common? They were each named to the preseason Doak Walker watch list.

Quizz is one of five players from the Pac-10 on the 45 member list. Other players from the Conference of Champions include Cal's Jahvid Best, Oregon's LeGarrette Blount, Arizona's Nic Grigsby and Stanford's Toby Gerhart.

Rodgers, who was a Doak Walker semifinalist last year, is also just one of eight sophomores listed. To view the full list click here.

The semifinalists will be announced Nov. 11 and the finalists on Nov. 23. The recipient will be named Dec. 10 on The Home Depot ESPNU College Football Awards Show in Orlando.

The award has been presented since 1990 and is named for SMU's three-time All-America running back Doak Walker.

It is the only major collegiate award that requires all candidates to be in good academic standing and on schedule to graduate within one year of other students of the same classification.
