While the college football season is still hanging in the balance, that doesn’t mean that preseason award lists aren’t moving right along. It’s watchlist season, and the latest Wisconsin Badger to earn preseason honors is quaretback Jack Coan.
On Tuesday Coan was added to the Davey O’Brien watchlist. The annual award is given to the nations best college quarterback. Last season the award was given to Heisman Trophy winner, LSU’s QB Joe Burrow.
Coan is one of 30 quarterbacks to make the cut, and is one of four Big Ten representatives. He is joined by Justin Fields of Ohio State, Sean Clifford of Penn State and Tanner Morgan of Minnesota.
The list will be narrowed down on three finalists on November 24, with the winning honoree being acknowledged Dec. 10 during The Home Depot College Football Awards.
Last season Coan was one of the country’s best in terms of completion percentage and passing efficiency with over 2700 yards passing, 18 touchdowns and five interceptions.
The now senior signal caller will be asked to take another jump heading into 2020 as he becomes a pivotal leader for the Wisconsin offense.
