Jul 20, 2021

LOS ANGELES — USC junior quarterback Kedon Slovis has been named to the 2021 Watch List for the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award, presented by the Davey O'Brien Foundation.

Earlier this week, Slovis made the Watch List for the Maxwell Award, given to college football's outstanding player.

Finalists for the O'Brien Award will be announced on Nov. 8, with finalists named on Nov. 22. The winner of the 2021 O'Brien Awardswill be announced as part of the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show held on Dec. 9.

Slovis, a 2-year starter, was the All-Pac-12 first team signalcaller last fall when he topped the nation in completions (29.5) and was in the Top 20 in passing yards (320.2), total offense (310.7) and completion percentage (.670). In 2020, he calmly led the Trojans to a trio of comeback victories in the games' final 2 minutes and he twice threw 5 TDs in a game. In his career, he has hit 70% — above the school record — of his 656 passes for 5,423 yards with 47 TDs and 16 interceptions to rank ninth on USC's all-time completions list and 10th in total offense.
