Parks Named to Doak Walker Watch List

Virginia running back Kevin Parks was named to the 2014 preseason Doak Walker Award Watch List Thursday. The award is given annually to the nation’s best running back.

Parks is a preseason All-ACC honoree and is the league’s leading returning rusher from 2013 when the tailback became the first UVa player to rush for over a 1,000 yards (1,031) since 2004. Parks’ 2,474 career rushing yards are the most in the ACC among active players and No. 8 all-time in the UVa record book.

The recipient of the 2014 Doak Walker Award will be announced live on The Home Depot College Football Awards on Thursday, Dec. 11, on ESPN.
