FORT COLLINS, Colo. – Colorado State junior linebacker Cory James has been named to the College Football Performance Awards 2014 Linebacker Trophy preseason watch list.

This award is given to the nation’s top linebacker based on scientific rankings that measures how the athlete increased the overall effectiveness of his team.

James, who finished eighth on the team with 60 tackles in 2013, was second on the team with 12 tackles for loss and eight sacks. In 26 career games, the native of Del Rio, Texas, has registered 15.5 sacks, just 1.5 sacks away from entering CSU’s career top 10 list.

James, who earned the same recognition in 2013, is among 40 players selected to the preseason watch list that includes five other linebackers from the Mountain West.

Most recently, the junior linebacker earned first-team Phil Steele and second-team Athlon Sports preseason honors.

About College Football Performance Awards:

The goal of College Football Performance Awards is to provide the most scientifically rigorous conferments in college football. Recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams.

As prominent scholars from a wide variety of disciplines note, CFPA eliminates the politics and biases that vitiate balloting-based awards. Furthermore, CFPA has received praise from both Republican and Democratic White House officials for promoting objectivity and fairness in college football.

CFPA is now in its seventh season of player and team performance recognition. Twenty-eight CFPA winners have been first-round NFL Draft selections.
