UW's Kirkland Named To Outland Trophy Watch List
Washington's Jaxson Kirkland has been named to the preseason watch list for the Outland Trophy, the Football Writers Association of America announced today.
Kirkland, an offensive tackle from Portland, Ore., will return for his sixth season on the Husky roster in 2022, having started nearly every game of the last four seasons after redshirting in 2017. He earned first-team All-Pac-12 in both 2020 and 2021 and was also named to the preseason watch list for the Outland Trophy last summer.
The son of former Husky offensive lineman Dean Kirkland, Jaxson has started 39 out of a possible 43 games over the last four years and is a two-time winner of the program's John P. Angel Lineman of the Year Award.
