Preseason recognition continues for Bulldog signal caller
The list of preseason honors for Mississippi State junior quarterback Dak Prescott keeps getting bigger.
On Wednesday, Prescott was a part of the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award watch list and was nominated for the Allstate American Football Coaches Association Good Works Team.
Prescott was one of 39 quarterbacks on the O'Brien Award watch list, which is given to the nation's top college quarterback. He was one of 182 players nominated for the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team, which recognizes student-athletes whose charitable involvement and community service contributions stand out.
The O'Brien Award will narrow the field down to 16 semifinalists on Nov. 3, then three finalists on Nov. 24. The winner will be announced on The Home Depot College Football Awards Show.
The Allstate AFCA Good Works comprises 11 FBS players and 11 FCS players. The final roster of 22 will be unveiled in September. A special voting panel consisting of former Allstate AFCA Good Works Team members and prominent college football media members will select the 2014 squad.Â
