Posted: 19 July, 2013
LINCOLN (NRN) - Husker quarterback Taylor Martinez continued Nebraska’s string of players on watch lists this month, as the senior was named to the 2013 Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award® Watch List.
This marks the third straight year that Martinez, an O’Brien Award semifinalist in 2010, has been on the preseason watch list for the award, which honor’s the nation’s top quarterback. The 6-1, 210-pound Martinez has already shattered several Nebraska records in his first three seasons as Nebraska’s starting quarterback. Martinez has established NU records for career and season total offense, career passing yards and ranks second among quarterbacks in career rushing yards. Martinez’s 39 career starts are the second-most of any returning player in the country, and his 2,858 career rushing yards are the most among active FBS players.
