Quarterback Andrew Walter Named To Prestigious Davey O'Brien Award Watch List

July 13, 2004

The Davey O'Brien Foundation today announced the preseason watch list for the 2004 Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award, given annually to the nation's top college quarterback. ASU senior quarterback Andrew Walter is one of 42 candidates on the list.

The O'Brien Award is the oldest and most prestigious award in the country for college quarterbacks and is named in honor of the late Davey O'Brien, the All-American and Heisman Trophy-winning quarterback for Texas Christian University who led the Horned Frogs to the 1938 national championship.

Semifinalists will be announced in early November and narrowed to three finalists later in that month by the O'Brien National Advisory Committee. The committee is comprised of nationally known sportswriters, commentators and other members of the media. The winner of the 2004 O'Brien Award will be announced Dec. 9 on the ESPN College Football Awards Show from Orlando, Fla. The winner will be honored at the 28th Annual O'Brien Awards Dinner in February 2005, at The Fort Worth Club in Fort Worth, Texas.
