Quarterback Brady Attaway has been named to the 2012 College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) Watch List for quarterbacks announced CFPA officials Wednesday morning. Attaway is one of 36 NCAA FCS quarterbacks named to the list, and is one of only three league quarterbacks on the list.
Attaway completed 299-of-495 (60.4%) passes for 3,181 yards and 27 touchdowns during his first year as the starting quarterback. An honorable mention All-SLC selection, Attaway led an offense that was ranked among the nation's top-10 in passing, total and scoring offense this past season. Attaway led the league, and was ranked 10th nationally averaging 286.9 yards of total offense per game.
Attaway will be aided by the return of four starters from a veteran offensive line that led the country in pass protection this pass season. In addition to the offensive front, Attaway will be joined by the return of All-American receivers Gralyn Crawford and Cordell Roberson.
