Posted July 27, 2018 by in

STANFORD, Calif. – Senior biology major Bryce Love was named to the Walter Camp Award preseason watch list, as announced by the Walter Camp Football Foundation on Friday.

The Walter Camp Award is presented annually to the best player in college football. Love was one of five finalists last season.

Love, last year’s Doak Walker Award winner and Pac-12 Offensive Player of the Year, paced Power 5 running backs in rushing yards, rushing yards/game, yards/carry and number of runs of 20, 30, 40 and 50 yards. His 13 runs of 50 or more yards set an FBS record. He had 12 100-yard rushing performances.

The Wake Forest, North Carolina, native was Stanford’s 10th unanimous All-America selection last season, including first-team Walter Camp All-America honors.

Love is also on the preseason watch lists for the Maxwell Award and the Doak Walker Award, and was named a preseason All-American by Sporting News and Athlon.

The watch list will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists in November. The Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient will be announced live on ESPN on Dec. 6.

Stanford begins the 2018 campaign on Aug. 31 against San Diego State. Kickoff at Stanford Stadium is set for 6 p.m. PT.
