NEW ORLEANS – Tulane University senior running back Darius Bradwell was named to the 2019 Doak Walker Award Watch List today by the PwC SMU Athletic Forum.

Bradwell received the preseason honor after he posted a memorable junior campaign in 2018, finishing the year with a team-best 1,174 yards and 11 touchdowns.

The Tallahassee, Florida, native was one of the Green Wave’s most consistent scoring threats a year ago, as he scored touchdowns in seven straight games and nine of Tulane’s 13 games. Bradwell also played a key role in the Green Wave’s 41-24 bowl victory over UL-Lafayette as he rushed for 150 yards on a career-high 35 carries en route to earning Most Valuable Player honors.

The PwC SMU Athletic Forum Board of Directors will name ten semifinalists in November, and three finalists, as voted on by the Doak Walker Award National Selection Committee, will be announced on November 20. The committee will cast a second vote beginning December 2 to determine the recipient. The National Selection Committee consists of past recipients, former NFL All-Pro and college All-America running backs, media members and selected special representatives.

The recipient of the 2019 Doak Walker Award will be announced live on The Home Depot College Football Awards on Thursday, December 12 on ESPN.

The award, which will name its 30th recipient in 2019, is named for SMU’s three-time All-America running back Doak Walker. It is the only major collegiate award that requires all candidates to be in good academic standing and on schedule to graduate within one year of other students of the same classification.

The Green Wave open the 2019 season on Thursday, August 29 at home against FIU with kickoff scheduled for 7 p.m.
