Beavers QB Sean Mannion Named to the Manning Award Watch ListSalem-News.com Sports
In 2013, Mannion set the league’s single season passing record with 4,662 yards and a school-record with 37 touchdown tosses.
(CORVALLIS, Ore. ) - Oregon State senior quarterback Sean Mannion was named to The Manning Award watch list Thursday.
The watch list for the Manning Award, sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl, includes 32 of the top quarterbacks in the nation heading into the 2014 season.
The winner will be selected by a voting panel, which includes the national media and each of the Mannings, after the bowls.
Mannion, who will lead the Beavers as a team captain for the third straight season, followed up his Pac-12 record-setting season with a strong performance this summer winning the Elite 11 counselor’s challenge and the 2014 Manning Passing Academy Air-It-Out Challenge.
He has rewritten the Oregon State and Pac-12 Conference record books during his tenure under center for the Beavers. In 2013, Mannion set the league’s single season passing record with 4,662 yards and a school-record with 37 touchdown tosses. He ranks second in OSU history – and 10th in Pac-12 lore – with 10,436 career yards through the air.
The Manning Award was created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl in honor of the college football accomplishments of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning. It is the only quarterback award that includes the candidates’ bowl performances in its balloting.
“This is always a great time of year with college football ramping up once again,” Archie Manning said. “We have a very strong group of 32 quarterbacks on our Watch List this year and we’ve seen them all in action, but every year there are new guys who jump right in and become starts. That’s what makes college football such a wonderful sport – you never know what might happen once the teams get out on the field.”
