Teddy Bridgewater Named To Prestigious Davey O’Brien Watch List

Posted on Jul 18 2012 - 11:27am by Brent Lepping


Yet another preseason accolade for Louisville QB Teddy Bridgewater as he was named to the annual Davey O’Brien watch list, which is given out at the end of the season to the nation’s top QB. Bridgewater joins South Florida’s BJ Daniels as the only other Big East QB named to the list. The 34 names on the list also include a who’s-who of college superstars, including USC’s Matt Barkley, Oklahoma’s Landry Jones, Michigan’s Denard Robinson, West Virginia’s Geno Smith and EJ Manuel of Florida State. The SEC and ACC lead the list with 6 players, followed by the Big Ten and Big 12, each with 5. The past several winners of the award include Robert Griffin lll, Cam Newton, Colt McCoy, Sam Bradford, Tim Tebow and Vince Young. While Bridgewater certainly appears poised for a breakout season, I think we as fans need to remember that the kid is only a sophomore and has tons of room to grow. Expectations are certainly high, but he’s probably still another year away from true greatness. Here’s the full watch list courtesy of www.daveyobrien.com.
