Wednesday morning, Trevor Knight was one of few sophomores to be recognized as one of the top quarterbacks in the country. While he has a lot of work to do, Knight was named to the 2014 Davey O’Brien Award Watch List.
The Davey O’Brien Award is annually awarded to college football’s best quarterback.
Jason White won the award back-to-back years in 2003 and 2004. Sam Bradford, also, won the award in 2008.
Knight may have a leg up on those guys if he can run the ball just as well as he can throw it. Regardless of awards, however, hopefully Knight can get Oklahoma in to the exclusive party of four that will compete for the National Championship come January.
