2020 Watch List

Below is the current Watch List for the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award. Active quarterbacks named to the original Preseason Watch List released this summer as well as any player named to the Davey O’Brien Award’s weekly Great 8 during the season will be included. Players listed below will be eligible to be voted the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award winner.

Please note that in cases where multiple quarterbacks from the same school have qualified for the midseason watch list, the Davey O’Brien Award will select the player determined to be in the best position to be named a semifinalist based on season performance, health and current playing status.
