2017 Walter Camp Award Watch List

BOISE, Idaho - Boise State quarterback Brett Rypien was named to a fifth postseason award watch list Friday, being named a candidate for the Walter Camp Award. It is the second year in a row in which the Bronco signal-caller has been named to the award's watch list.

The Walter Camp Award, given annually to the national player of the year, will be announced Dec. 7.

Rypien is one of 40 players on the watch list, and one of only 15 quarterbacks. He is also one of only three players from the Mountain West on the list (Josh Allen, Wyoming; Rashaad Penny, San Diego State).

This preseason, Rypien has also been named a candidate for the Maxwell Award, the Allstate AFCA Good Hands Team, the Wuerffel Trophy and the Davey O'Brien Award.

Last season, Rypien was named to the All-Mountain West First Team for the second year in a row, leading the Mountain West and finishing 12th nationally in passing yards (3,646), while also pacing the conference in completions (244) and attempts (394) while finishing second with 24 touchdown passes. He directed a Bronco offense that led the Mountain West and ranked 21st in the country in total offense with 472.8 yards per game, while the Bronco passing offense ranked 15th in the country and also paced the Mountain West at 298.3 yards per contest.

Boise State opens its 2017 campaign Sept. 2 at Albertsons Stadium, hosting Troy at 1:45 p.m.
