Three More Penn State Football Stars Earn Spots On Preseason Award Watch Lists

Penn State football stars Mike Miranda, Rasheed Walker, and Jaquan Brisker earned spots on preseason award watch lists Tuesday morning.

Offensive linemen Miranda and Walker were both added to the Outland Trophy preseason watch list. Instituted in 1946, the award is presented to college football’s top interior lineman each year.

Brisker joined the Bronko Nagurski Trophy preseason watch list, which is annually awarded to college football’s best defensive player. Micah Parsons and Yetur Gross-Matos joined the same list in recent years.

This is yet another addition to Brisker’s preseason hype. He was added to the Jim Thorpe and Bednarik Award watch lists. He’s also been named preseason All-American by Pro Football Focus.

Miranda and Walker spent last season improving on their technique with instruction from second-year position coach Phil Trautwein. Miranda earned second-team All-Big Ten honors from coaches, while Walker was named third-team All-Big Ten by the media.

Penn State will open its season on the road against Wisconsin at noon on September 4.
