Alabama running back Damien Harris and defensive lineman Raekwon Davis have been named to the 2018 Walter Camp Award Watch List, announced by the Walter Camp Foundation Friday morning.
Harris and Davis are among 50 players nationwide on the list. The award is given annually to the most outstanding player in college football as judged by the Walter Camp Foundation. Derrick Henry is the only Alabama player to have won the award, doing so in 2015.
Harris led the Crimson Tide in rushing yards in 2016 and 2017, amassing at least 1,000 yards in each season.This is the third preseason watch list for Harris this summer, having also been named to the watch lists for the Maxwell (best all-around player) and Doak Walker (top running back) Awards.
Davis led the team with 8.5 sacks as a true sophomore, adding with 45 tackles, 10 tackles for loss, a fumble return and his first career interception in the national championship game. Davis also featured on the watch lists for the Chuck Bednarik Award and Nagurski Trophy, each given to the best defensive player in college football, earlier this month.
The winner will be announced before the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show in December.
