Bulldogs’ Lee: Walker Award ‘Watch List’ slot
Louisiana Tech University sophomore running back Hunter Lee was named to the Doak Walker Award preseason “Watch List” by the PwC SMU Athletic Forum. The award is presented annually to the nation’s top running back.
The field of 52 candidates is highlighted by 2011 Doak Walker Award finalist Montee Ball from the University of Wisconsin.
Ball, a senior from Wentzville, Missouri, led the nation in rushing yards and scoring last season. Other nominees include 2011 semifinalists Rex Burkhead (Nebraska), Zach Line (SMU) and Joseph Randle (Oklahoma State).
