The junior collects his fourth preseason honor with the recognition

NEW HAVEN, Conn. – The Walter Camp Football Foundation announced the names of 50 “players to watch” for its 2015 Player of the Year award, the nation’s fourth-oldest individual college football accolade, and Virginia Tech defensive back Kendall Fuller made the list.

Fuller was one of nine players on the 2015 watch list who had previously earned Walter Camp All-American honors, as he was a second-team member last year, one of the four All-America teams he made in 2014.

The Baltimore, Maryland native was a first-team All-ACC choice by both the Atlantic Coast Sports Media Association and the league’s coaches after he started all 13 games as a sophomore and had 54 tackles (32 solo), including 4.5 for a loss. He also had two interceptions and two sacks

In all, 37 schools are represented on the list, with defending national champion and 2015 Hokies’ opening opponent Ohio State having five players, including its three quarterbacks. There are 37 offensive players (22 quarterbacks, 11 running backs and four receivers) and 13 from the defensive side of the ball (five linebackers, five defensive backs and three defensive linemen).

“We are proud to continue the great work of Walter Camp and recognize the best college football players in the nation,” Foundation president Robert Kauffman 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 2015 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, which is voted on by the 128 NCAA Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors, will be announced live on ESPN SportsCenter on Dec. 10. The winner will then receive his trophy at the Foundation’s annual national awards banquet on January 16, 2016 at the Yale University Commons in New Haven.
