Three Sun Devils on Maxwell Award Watch List
Monday, the Maxwell Award Watch List for 2014 was released and there are three Arizona State Sun Devils listed among the 76 names.
Senior quarterback Taylor Kelly, junior running back D.J. Foster and junior wide receiver Jaelen Strong all received mention from the Maxwell Club.
Kelly is going into his third year as the starting quarterback for the Sun Devils. In the last two years, the Eagle, Idaho native has completed 64.4 percent (543-of-843) of his passes for 6,674 yards and 57 touchdowns. With Kelly at the controls, ASU has piled up an 18-9 record.
The multi-faceted Foster amassed 1,154 yards from scrimmage in 2013 and found the end zone 10 times. He looks to have an even bigger role in Arizona State's offense in 2014 with the departure of running back Marion Grice.
Strong made a huge impression in his first year in Tempe. The transfer from Pierce College caught 75 passes for 1,122 yards and seven touchdowns while earning Second Team All-Pac-12 honors.
Arizona State is one of only six schools with three players on the list, joining Alabama, Baylor, Florida State, Oregon and USC.
Alabama quarterback A.J. McCarron won the award in 2013.
