Arizona State sophomore quarterback Taylor Kelly was one of ten players added to the 2012 Watch List for the Manning Award, which has been awarded annually to the nation’s best college quarterback since 2004.
Kelly, who won Arizona State’s starting job in fall camp, has completed 112 of 164 passes for 1,600 yards and 14 touchdowns against only two interceptions. He has led the Sun Devils to a surprising 5-1 start.
The Eagle, Idaho native leads the Pac-12 and is third nationally in passing efficiency with a rating of 175.98.
Ten finalists for the award will be determined by a panel of national media as well as Peyton, Eli and Archie Manning, for whom the award is named. The winner will be announced Wednesday, January 9.
