Tide Players make Preseason Award Watch lists

Five University of Alabama players have been named to preseason award watch lists by the Football Writers Association of America. The Tide will have players in the running so far for the Outland Trophy and the Bronko Nagurski Trophy.

The Outland Trophy is awarded to the nation’s outstanding interior linemen and making the preseason list for the Tide are James Carpenter and Barrett Jones. Both will anchor this seasons offensive line unit and will look to be the top of the list.

As for the Nagurski Trophy, which is awarded to the top defensive player in the country, defensive linemen Marcell Dareus, safety Mark Barron, and linebacker Dont’a Hightower. All will look to make their presence felt on a defense that returns only a few key players from a year ago.
