FORT COLLINS, Colo. - Colorado State sophomore linebacker Cory James has been named to the College Football Performance Awards 2013 CFPA Linebacker Trophy preseason watch list.

After his outstanding freshman season, James earned second-team Freshman All-America by College Football News, second-team All-Freshman by Phil Steele’s College Football Preview, and was named to the Freshman All-America team by the Football Writers Association of America.
