BOISE, Idaho - The Walter Camp Football Foundation announced 15 "Players to Watch" for its 2010 National Player of the Year Award, Tuesday (Nov. 16), which includes Boise State quarterback Kellen Moore as one of 13 offensive players recognized by the Foundation.

Moore, a redshirt junior from Prosser, Wash. (Prosser HS), has played a vital role in Boise State's 9-0 record (5-0 Western Athletic Conference) and No. 4 BCS ranking heading into this week. He currently leads the nation in pass efficiency rating (191.45 percent), with a completion percentage of 71.9 percent. Moore has completed 174-of-242 passes for 2,588 yards, 24 touchdowns and four interceptions.

Moore is one of nine quarterbacks selected as a "Player to Watch" for the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award, which is voted on by Football Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors. The watch list also includes three running backs, one wide receiver and two defensive players. Five finalists for the award will be selected on Dec. 1 (Wednesday). The winner will be announced on Dec. 9 (Thursday) during the 6 p.m. ESPN SportsCenter broadcast.

This marks the second postseason award shortlist for Moore in as many weeks as he was also named one of 16 semifinalists for the Maxwell Award on Nov. 8.

Boise State returns home this week for a highly anticipated WAC match-up against Fresno State, Friday (Nov. 19), at Bronco Stadium. The game will air on ESPN2 and is scheduled to kick-off at 7:35 p.m. (MST).
