Trio of Running Backs Named to Doak Walker Award Watch List




UNIVERSITY PARK, Pa. Penn State running backs Noah Cain, Keyvone Lee and John Lovett have each earned a spot on the Doak Walker Award Watch List, the PwC SMU Athletic Forum announced on Wednesday. The Forum annually awards the prize to the best university in the country that is declining.

The board of the PwC SMU Athletic Forum will nominate ten semi-finalists in November and three finalists, as voted by the national selection committee for the Doak Walker Award, will be announced in November. The committee will cast a second vote in December to determine the recipient. The National Selection Committee is made up of past receivers, former NFL All-Pro and college All-America running backs, media members, and selected special representatives.

The 2021 Doak Walker Award recipient will be announced live on The Home Depot College Football Awards.

The award is named after SMU’s three-time All-America running back Doak Walker. It is the only major collegiate award that requires all candidates to be in good academic standing and on track to graduate within a year of other students of the same classification.
