Ohio State Football: Braxton Miller named to 2014 Maxwell Award Watch List

Without question, a lot of eyes will be on Ohio State quarterback Braxton Miller heading into this season, and that was magnified even more as he was named to one of the most prestigious preseason watch lists in the game.

As the watch lists began to roll out on Monday, Miller was among the many names that were attached to the preseason watch list for the 2014 Maxwell Award.

The Maxwell Award is presented every year by the Maxwell Football Club to the top college football player in the country. With Miller considered one of the elite players in the game today, as well as a legitimate Heisman Trophy candidate once again, it’s really no shocker that he was able to join this prestigious group of players to watch this season.

Here’s a look at the rest of the candidates that joined Miller.


Each one of those names deserve to be on the list, along with Braxton, but once the rigors of the season are over come this December, only one of them can walk away with the coveted trophy.

What do you think of Miller’s chances to come away with the Maxwell Award this season? Please, feel free to let us know your thoughts in the comments section below.
