Kansas State senior running back John Hubert was one of 50 players nationally, and five from the Big 12, named to the 2013 Walter Camp Player of the Year watch list on Friday.
Hubert, also a preseason candidate for the Maxwell and Doak Walker Awards, ranked fourth in the Big 12 in rushing at 72.8 yard per game last season, while he had 15 rushing touchdowns to finish third. Also a Preseason All-Big 12 pick, Hubert earned All-Big 12 First-Team honors in 2012 from the league’s coaches and enters the 2013 season just 15 yards shy of K-State’s career Top 10 for rushing yards.
The watch list will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists in mid-November. The 2013 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, which is voted on by the 125 NCAA Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors, will be announced on ESPN on Dec. 12. The winner will then receive his trophy at the foundation’s annual national awards banquet in January at the Yale University Commons in New Haven.
