Harris Named to Nagurski Trophy Preseason Watch List

Virginia senior strong safety Anthony Harris was named to the 2014 preseason Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List, the Football Writers Association of America announced Thursday. The award is given annually to the nation’s best defensive player.

Harris was also named to the preseason Bednarik Award Watch List on Monday. As a junior in 2013, Harris led the nation with eight interceptions and set a UVa record with at least one interception in five straight games. CFPA listed Harris on its preseason 42-man watch list for its defensive back of the year.

The winner of the award will be announced on Dec. 8 at the annual Bronko Nagurski Trophy Banquet in Charlotte. Alabama head coach Nick Saban will be the keynote speaker at the banquet.
