Baylor LB Bryce Hager named to Butkus Award Watch List

This is the fourth such honor for the senior cog in the middle of Baylor's defense.

Jerome Miron-USA TODAY Sports

Another day ... half-day, really ... another Watch List honor for Baylor's senior MLB, Bryce Hager.  This time, we're talking about the Butkus Award, given annually to the nation's top linebacker.  Hager is joined by TCU's Paul Dawson, Texas' Steve Edmond and Jordan Hicks, Kansas' Ben Heeney, and Oklahoma's Frank Shannon and Eric Striker as the Big 12's representatives.  Hager has now made the Watch Lists for the Butkus, Lombardi, Nagurski, and Bednarik awards.  Other than the Heisman itself, which I don't believe has an official watch list, that's all the awards for which he is eligible.
