Grayson named to Manning Award watch list




Aug. 14, 2014

FORT COLLINS, Colo. – With Colorado State’s season-opener only 15 days away, senior quarterback Garrett Grayson’s name was added to the Manning Award watch list on Thursday afternoon.

The senior from Vancouver, Wash., enters the 2014 season within reach of every major career passing record at Colorado State. As a junior in 2013 Grayson started all 14 games and broke the school's single-season records for passing yards (3,696), pass attempts (478) and completions (297), and tied the standard for touchdown passes (23). He is believed to be the first Colorado State player to earn preseason watch list recognition for the Manning Award.

With Grayson behind center the Rams in 2013 were one of just six FBS schools to rank among the top 30 in both rushing and passing yards per game. He and running back Kapri Bibbs--a Walter Camp second-team All-American in 2013--made CSU the only FBS team last season with a 3,200-yard passer and a 1,500-yard rusher, and the first time in school history two Rams amassed such totals in the same season.

Grayson attended the Manning Passing Academy in July, with 40 of the top college quarterbacks in Thibodaux, La., on the campus of Nicholls State University.

This offseason Grayson has been named to the Davey O’Brien Award, Walter Camp Award and Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award watch lists.

The Manning Award, sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl, includes 32 of the top quarterbacks from around the country. The winner will be selected by a voting panel which consists of national media and each of the Manning’s. The award will be announced after bowl season.

The Manning Award was created by the Allstate Sugar Bowl in honor of the college football accomplishments of Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning.
