WKU’s Jarret Doege makes Maxwell Award Watch List

BOWLING GREEN, Ky. – The Maxwell Football Club announced its watch list for the 86th Maxwell Award Monday with WKU quarterback Jarret Doege named among the initial list of student-athletes.

The Maxwell Award has been presented annually to the most outstanding player in college football since 1937 and is named in honor of Robert “Tiny” Maxwell who was a former standout at Swarthmore College and a renowned sportswriter and football official.

Doege enters the 2022 season as college football’s active leader in passing yards (10,494) and passing touchdowns (79). Last season at West Virginia he threw for 3,048 yards and 19 touchdowns while completing 65 percent of his passes. He will now be playing in an offense that set FBS records for passing yards and passing touchdowns in a single season just a year ago with NFL draft pick Bailey Zappe under center.

The winner of the 86th Maxwell Award will be announced as part of the ESPN Home Depot College Football Awards Show held on December 8, 2022.
