From wire reports

Washington State quarterback Luke Falk was named to the 2017 Walter Camp Player of the Year Preseason Watch List, the award foundation announced on Friday.

Falk is one of 40 players, including five from the Pac-12 Conference, named to the watch list for the nation’s fourth-oldest individual college football accolade. Falk was a semifinalist for the award last season.

Falk, a redshirt-senior, was a finalist for the Manning Award and Johnny Unitas Award and a semifinalist for the Davey O’Brien Award and Maxwell Award last season after throwing for the third-most yards in the country (4,468) and tying his own school-record with 38 touchdown passes, earning All-Pac-12 second team honors.

Earlier this week, Falk was named to watch lists for the Maxwell Award (National Player of the Year), the Davey O’Brien Award (nation’s top quarterback) and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award (nation’s top quarterback who will graduate this year).

The watch list will be narrowed to 10 semi-finalists in mid-November. The 2017 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, which is voted on by the 130 NCAA Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors, will be announced on Dec 7.
