Nick Marshall Receiving More Pre-Season Recognition
Despite his recent troubles, Nick Marshall continues to have his name selected for various pre-season honors. It was announced today that Nick has been placed on the list for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award.
A frequent mention in Heisman discussions, he was named a pre-season First Team All-SEC quarterback and picked as the SEC Player of the Year at SEC Media Days.
This past week he landed on the Maxwell Award list which goes to college football’s top player as well as the Davey O’Brien Award which recognizes the nation’s best quarterback.
Last year the Auburn senior became the fourth quarterback in SEC history to rush for 1,000 yards in a season. He threw for 1,976 yards, combining for 26 touchdowns while leading his team to an SEC Championship and berth in the National Championship game.
There still remains a question of whether he will miss any playing time due to Gus Malzahn’s statement to the media that Marshall will have to face consequences for his misdemeanor citation in Reynolds, Ga.
The winner of the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award will be announced on Dec. 11. at the Home Depot College Awards ceremony.
