Hilltoppers’ Malone, Zappe named to 2022 Reese’s Senior Bowl Watchlist

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – Western Kentucky’s DeAngelo Malone and Bailey Zappe have been named to the 2022 Reese’s Senior Bowl Watchlist.

Bailey Zappe is one of just 26 quarterbacks named to the list while DeAngelo Malone is one of 69 linebackers.

Zappe has yet to play a snap at the hill — but has received plenty of accolades ahead of the 2021 season, including 2021 Conference USA Preseason Watch List, 2021 Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Watch List, 2021 Phil Steele Preseason All-CUSA First Team.

The Hilltoppers will take to the gridiron Thurs. Sept. 2nd at 7 p.m. when they face the UT Martin Skyhawks. WKU’s season opener will be at Houchens Industries–L. T. Smith Stadium.
