Terrance Broadway Named To Manning Watch List
Louisiana's Ragin' Cajuns quarterback Terrance Broadway was named to another preseason watch list today, making the cut for the Manning award. He made the cut for the Davey O'Brien award watch list earlier this summer.
The Manning award, which is given at the end of college football season to a quarterback, recognized 30 returning QBs today on their watch list. Players that ranked in the top 30 of ESPN's total quarterback rating (QBR) make up the list. The ratings in an in depth computation that requires examination of every play the QB is on the field.
“Being included on this award list means a lot to me because growing up in Louisiana, I have always admired the Manning family and have tried to play like them,” Broadway said. “With practice starting next week, it is important that my teammates and I stay focused on the goals ahead. I have said it before, it doesn’t matter where you start, it is where you finish.”
Allstate Sugar Bowl committee members are responsible for creating the Manning award, and did so to honor a standout college QB in the present, and three great college QBs of the past in Archie Manning, Peyton Manning, and Eli Manning.
Manning award winners are voted on by Archie, Peyton, and Eli, as well as members of the national media. It is the only college football award that includes bowl performances in its balloting.
This season marks the 10th year of the Manning award, with past winners including USC's Matt Leinart in 2005, Texas' Vince Young in 2006, LSU's JaMarcus Russell in 2007, Boston College's Matt Ryan in 2008, Florida star Tim Tebow in 2009, Texas signal-caller Colt McCoy in 2010, Auburn's Cam Newton in 2011, Baylor's Robert Griffin III in 2012, and Texas A&M's Johnny Manziel last year.
10 finalists will be named on Wednesday, November 27, with the winner being named on Wednesday, January 8th.
