Two CAA Football rookies have been rewarded for their strong collegiate starts with selections to the 2013 Jerry Rice Award Watch List, as announced by The Sports Network on Wednesday.

Maine LB Christophe Mulumba and James Madison LB Gage Steele each earned spots on the watch list for the honor, presented annually to the top freshman in the FCS and which has been swept by CAA Football in both years of its existence after Towson RB Terrance West won it in 2011 and Villanova QB John Robertson followed suit a year ago.
