NEW HAVEN, Conn. -- The Walter Camp Football Foundation has announced the 50-player watch list for its 2014 Player of the Year award, the nation’s fourth-oldest individual college football accolade.

Florida State sophomore quarterback Jameis Winston, the 2013 Walter Camp Player of the Year award recipient, headlines the 2014 watch list.  Winston, a Second Team Walter Camp All-American a year ago, accounted for 4,057 passing yards and 40 touchdowns for the national champion Seminoles. Ten players on the 2014 watch list, including Winston, have previously earned Walter Camp All-America honors.

In all, 42 schools are represented on the list with Alabama having three players. There are 33 offensive players (16 quarterbacks, eight receivers, seven running backs and two linemen) and 17 from the defensive side of the ball (seven defensive backs, five lineman and five linebackers).

“We are proud to continue the great work of Walter Camp and recognize the best college football players in the nation,” Foundation President James Monico said. “This watch list is a great start to what is shaping up to be another exciting year of college football.”

The watch list will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists in mid-November.  The 2014 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, which is voted on by the 125 FBS head coaches and sports information directors, will be announced on ESPN on Dec. 11.  The winner will then receive his trophy at the Foundation’s annual national awards banquet on Jan. 17 at the Yale University Commons in New Haven.
