Five Tigers Named to Maxwell, Bednarik Watch Lists

Five members of the LSU football team – three on defense and two on offense -- have been named to watch lists for the 2008 Maxwell and Bednarik Awards, the Maxwell Football Club announced on Monday.
Headlining the list of LSU’s candidates for the Bednarik Award is senior defensive end Tyson Jackson, who has already been named as a preseason All-America selection. The other two Tigers on the Bednarik list include senior linebacker Darry Beckwith and junior defensive tackle Ricky Jean-Francois.
LSU senior wide receiver Demetrius Byrd and junior running back Keiland Williams are among 75 players from across the country named to the watch list for the Maxwell Award, which goes to the most outstanding collegiate football player.
Tim Tebow of the University of Florida was the recipient of the 71st Maxwell Award and Dan Connor of Penn State University was awarded the 13th Chuck Bednarik Award for their outstanding performance during the 2007 season. Tebow, the first sophomore to ever win the Maxwell Award, returns for his junior season with the Gators. Connor is now a member of the Carolina Panthers.
Last year, LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey was a finalist for the Bednarik Award.
Semifinalists for the Maxwell and Bednarik Awards will be announced in early November and three finalists for each award will be announced November 25th. The winners of the 2008 Maxwell and Bednarik Awards will be announced as part of the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show in December. The formal presentation of these awards will be made at the Maxwell Football Club Awards Gala hosted by Harrah’s Entertainment Atlantic City on March 6, 2009.
