Stanford QB Hogan on watch list for the O'Brien award

Stanford senior quarterback Kevin Hogan is among 39 of the nation's best players named to the 2014 Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award® Watch List today, as announced by The Davey O'Brien Foundation.

This year's list, which was compiled by a subset of the Davey O'Brien National Selection Committee, was selected based on player performance during the previous year and expectations heading into the 2014 college football season. All nominees were required to have started at least one college game previously

The field will be narrowed to 16 semifinalists on Nov. 3 and three finalists will be announced three weeks later, on Nov. 24.

The 2014 Davey O'Brien winner will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards on Dec. 11 and the 38th Annual Davey O'Brien Awards Dinner will be held Feb. 16, 2015, in Fort Worth, Texas.

Hogan was previously named to the Maxwell Award watch list as national player of the year. A multi-faceted quarterback, Hogan is 16-3 as a starter and 10-1 against nationally-ranked opponents.

He ran for the third-highest single season yardage by a Stanford quarterback last season (355 yards). Through the air Hogan attempted just 295 passes but completed 180 of them (61 percent) en route to 2,630 yards and 20 touchdowns.

Another great kudo for Stanford sports. We have the best college in the world of sports right here in Palo Alto and this news for Hogan is just a taste of the greatness we are going to witness in the upcoming football season. Do not be surprised if once again the Cardinal is one of the top teams in the nation; Go Stanford!
