On Monday, the first two watch lists in college football were revealed: the Maxwell Award which honors the nation's best overall player and the Bednarik Award which recognizes the best defensive player. On these two lists, 11 players from the state of Texas were recognized. Here they are:
The University of Texas leads the way with four players while Texas A&M and TCU have two each. Suprisingly, Baylor, after the success they've seen over the last few seasons has only one player on the list along with Texas Tech and SMU.
Other watch lists should be released over the next few weeks and SBNation Dallas will have all of the local players featured.
