Penn State tailback Silas Redd has earned a spot on another watch list for a national award, this one being the Doak Walker Award given to the nation’s top running back, not just for his achievement on the field, but his accomplishments in the classroom and in the community.

Redd, a junior, also is on the watch list for the Maxwell Award, given to the nation’s top football player by the Maxwell Football Club of Philadelphia. He rushed for 1,241 yards last season.

Senior linebacker Gerald Hodges, of Paulsboro, N.J., can find his name on four watch lists – the Nagurski Trophy (best defensive player), the Butkus Award (top linebacker), the Rotary Lombardi Award (top lineman or linebacker) and the Bednarik Award (top defensive player).

Other Penn State players so honored in the pre-season are senior defensive tackle Jordan Hill (Outland Trophy for the top interior lineman, Rotary Lombardi Award) and senior linebacker Michael Mauti (Butkus Award).
