Michigan cornerback Lavert Hill has had quite the month when it comes to being featured on watch lists. Hill made the Nagurski Trophy Watch List, Bednarik Award Watch List, and Jim Thorpe Award Watch List. And now Hill has notched another watch list onto his belt, the Walter Camp Player of the Year Watch List.
Lavert Hill has been named to the watch list for the Walter Camp Player of the Year award, given annually to the outstanding player of the year! #GoBlue 〽️ pic.twitter.com/RG0sm6c9tJ— Michigan Football (@UMichFootball) July 26, 2019
The award goes to the most outstanding player in college football and is the fourth oldest individual college football accolade.
40 players made the watch list, but only 10 were on the defensive side of the ball, meaning Hill is in elite company and considered top-tier himself.
Hill was a unanimous All Big Ten first-team selection in 2018, was a Jim Thorpe Award semifinalist, and was selected as a associated press All-American (third-team).
The watch list will be narrowed down to ten players in late November and the award winner will be announced on Dec. 12.
