Tua Tagovailoa is one of five Walter Camp Player of the Year Award finalists, the foundation announced Wednesday. This honor recognizes the national player of the year.
As Alabama’s starting quarterback, Tagovailoa has thrown for 3,189 yards with a 70.3-percent completion rate and a school-record 36 touchdowns. He has also scored five times on the ground.
The other finalists are West Virginia’s Will Grier, Oklahoma’s Kyler Murray and Washington State’s Gardner Minshew. All of them are quarterbacks. Kentucky linebacker Josh Allen is the fifth finalist.
The winner will be revealed Dec. 6 on ESPN’s SportsCenter.
Former Alabama running back Derrick Henry took home the title in 2015.
Tagovailoa is also still up for the Davey O’Brien and Maxwell awards.
