It’s almost football season!
On July 18, the University of Nevada, Reno (UNR), announced that sophomore Cody Fajaro has a place on the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award® Watch List.
This preseason list includes 34 college QBs, selected for both their character and their athletic performance the prior year. Fajardo was the Western Athletic Conference Freshman of the Year, passing for a little over 1700 yards in 2011.
UNR has moved to the Mountain West Conference this year and only one other QB from the conference is on the Watch List. They are in good company, joining QBs from the PAC-12, Big 10 and SEC, among other large and small conferences. Quarterbacks from all 124 NCAA division 1 colleges are eligible for the award. Sixteen semifinalists will be announced on October 22.
