The preseason hype for Tyler Russell keeps stacking up.
The Mississippi State senior quarterback was recognized again on Friday. This time by the Walter Camp Foundation.
Russell was selected to the Walter Camp Award watch list, given annually to the nation's most outstanding college football player.
"My main goal is to be a leader on and off the field," Russell said this week at Southeastern Conference Media Days in Hoover, Ala. "Right now, I've got to get the guys to have the same mindset that I have â€“ that sense of urgency. If I think about the things I had done, if I knew what I know now when I first started, my life would be a whole lot easier. I try to explain to those guys, if you learn it now, everything will be a whole lot smoother for you."Â
