TAMPA, JULY 5, 2016  – USF junior running back Marlon Mack (Sarasota) has been named to the watch list for the 80th Maxwell Award and junior cornerback Deatrick Nichols (Miami) to watch list for the 22nd Bednarik Award, the Maxwell Football Club announced on Tuesday.

The Maxwell Award has been given to America's College Player of the Year since 1937. Mack led the American Athletic Conference in rushing for the second-straight season in 2015 as he logged a USF record 1,381 yards and 6.6 yards per carry. The two-time first-team all-conference back enters 2016 with 2,422 career yards and 17 touchdowns, just 309 yards and eight touchdowns shy of the USF career records. He posted a USF record nine 100-yard games in 2015, including in each of the Bulls’ last five games and a 230-yard outing vs. Temple.

The Bednarik Award has been presented to the College Defensive Player of the Year since 1995. Nichols led USF with four interceptions and five pass break-ups in 2015 and earned first-team all-conference honors. Nichols ranked fourth on the team with 62 tackles and added 8.5 tackles for loss (third on the team), two forced fumbles, a fumble recovery and a sack.

Robert W. "Tiny" Maxwell’s contributions to the game of football were extensive, including time as a player, a sportswriter and an official.  Chuck Bednarik, former standout at Penn and with the Philadelphia Eagles, is a member of both the College Football Hall of Fame's Class of '69 and the NFL Hall of Fame's Class of '67.

    "I wish you guys could be in the locker room and be on the practice field because it is so much different from what it has been in the past."
