Season-long excellence has led to two players joining the 2011 Walter Payton Award Watch List including Towson freshman running back Terrance West. West joins four other CAA Football athletes who have been part of the watch list throughout parts of 2011 including William and Mary’s Jonathan Grimes, Delaware’s Andrew Pierce, Old Dominion’s Thomas DeMarco and New Hampshire’s Kevin Decker.
The Payton Award will celebrate its 25th anniversary this season and be presented to the FCS’ outstanding player at the national awards banquet Friday night, Jan. 6 in Frisco, Texas. Ballots will be sent to a panel of about 200 sports information and media relations directors, broadcasters, writers and other dignitaries after the regular season on Nov. 21. Three finalists will be announced on Dec. 1 and invited to The Sports Network/Fathead FCS Awards Presentation.
