PSR Logo
Pitt senior defensive end Brandon Lindsey and West Virginia junior quarterback Geno Smith are among the Walter Camp Football Foundation's forty “players to watch” for its 2011 Player of the Year award.

Lindsey, of Aliquippa High School, led the Big East with 17.5 tackles for losses and tied for 14th in the NCAA with 10 sacks. In his first year as a starter, he was named second team All-Big East.

Lindsey has been named to several other preseason award lists, inlcuding the Nagurski and Bednarik awards, which both honor the best defensive player in college football.

Smith, who came to West Virginia from Miami, started all 13 games in 2010 and was named first team All-Big East by ESPN.com, rivals.com and Phil Steele, and second team by the league's coaches.

The Foundation and the Selection Committee will announce three finalists on Monday, Nov. 21, with the 2011 Davey O'Brien winner to be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards on Thursday, Dec. 8.

The 35th Annual Davey O'Brien Awards Dinner will be held Feb. 20, 2012 in Fort Worth, Texas.
