TALLHASSEE, Fla. (AP) — Heisman Trophy winner Jameis Winston headlines a group of six Florida State Seminoles named to college football preseason award watch lists.
The quarterback is joined by receiver Rashad Greene and running back Karlos Williams on the list for the Maxwell Award given to the college football player of the year. The watch lists were announced Monday.
Winston is the lone 2013 finalist on the list. Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron won the Maxwell Award last year.
Florida State cornerback P.J. Williams and defensive end Mario Edwards, Jr. are both on the list for the Chuck Bednarik Award given to the defensive player of the year.
Receiver and kick returner Kermit Whitfield is on the list for the Paul Hornung Award given to the most versatile player in college football.
