Lincoln -- Nebraska sophomore quarterback Adrian Martinezearned a spot on a watch list for the fourth time in the last two weeks, as the Walter Camp Football Foundation announced Martinez as one of 40 “players to watch” for its 2019 Player of the Year award.

 

Martinez looks to join a trio of Huskers who have won the Walter Camp winners, joining previous winners Johnny Rodgers (1972), Mike Rozier (1983) and Eric Crouch (2001). Martinez is one of seven Big Ten players on the Water Camp preseason list.

 

Martinez returns to pilot the Husker attack after a record-breaking freshman year in 2018. The 6-foot-2, 220-pounder set 11 school records after becoming the first true freshman quarterback to start an opener in school history. On the season, Martinez completed 224-of-347 passes for 2,617 yards and 17 touchdowns, while also rushing for 629 yards and eight scores en route to All-Big Ten and Freshman All-America honors.

 

Martinez ranked 12th nationally and led all freshmen nationally in total offense per game (295.1 ypg) while also setting school marks for 300-yard total offense (seven) and 400-yard total offense (three) games in 2018. Martinez set freshman records for completions, completion percentage, passing yards, passing touchdowns, total offense and total touchdowns (25), and he was fourth nationally among all freshmen in passing yards per game at 237.9 yards per game.

 

Martinez threw for a season-high 384 yards and two touchdowns against Wisconsin, while his best game of the year came against Minnesota, when he completed a school-record 86.2 percent of his passes (25-of-29) for 276 yards and three touchdowns, while rushing for a career-high 125 yards and a score on 15 carries.

 

Earlier this month, Martinez was named to the Maxwell and Davey O’Brien Award watch lists, as well as earning a place on the Big Ten’s Players to Watch list.

 

The Walter Camp watch list will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists in mid-November. The 2019 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, which is voted on by the 130 NCAA Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors, will be announced live on ESPN on Thursday, December 12.

Spielman Chosen for Paul Hornung Award Watch List

Nebraska wide receiver JD Spielman picked up his second watch list recognition on Thursday, as the junior was named to the 2019 Paul Hornung Award presented by Texas Roadhouse.

 

Spielman was tabbed for the list for the second consecutive season and is one of 44 players, including eight from the Big Ten, on the initial watch list. The award is presented to the most versatile player in college football. Players on this year’s watch list accounted for 15,343 rushing yards, 18,538 receiving yards, 14,401 kickoff return yards, 2,897 punt return yards and 323 total tackles in 2018. Reminiscent of Hornung during his playing days, members of the watch list demonstrated a knack for scoring numerous ways. Last season, the watch list players combined for 316 total touchdowns in six different ways – rushing; receiving; passing; and returning punts, kickoffs and interceptions.

 

Spielman, a 5-foot-9, 180-pound wide receiver, has a chance to finish his junior season as the most prolific receiver in school history and has ranked in the top five in the Big Ten in all-purpose yards per game in both seasons as a Husker. He enters his junior campaign needing only 68 catches and 1,099 yards to break NU career records in both categories.

 

Last season, Spielman hauled in 66 passes for 881 yards and eight touchdowns, despite missing the final two games of the season. He finished on NU’s top-10 single-season list in catches (third), yards (ninth) and touchdowns (seventh). He ranked among the Big Ten leaders in receptions per game (6.6, second), receiving yards per game (81.8, fourth) and all-purpose yards per game (111.5, fifth) en route to earning All-Big Ten honors for the second straight season.

 

His best performance came against nationally-ranked Wisconsin, when he shattered Nebraska’s single-game receiving record with 209 yards. He is the only player in school history with a 200-yard receiving game. Spielman hauled in 10 passes for 135 yards against Purdue and is the only receiver in school history with multiple double-digit reception games.

 

Spielman will look to be NU’s first-ever winner of the honor, while Ameer Abdullah was a finalist in 2014. The last three winners have come from the Big Ten, including 2018 recipient Rondale Moore of Purdue. The award will announce five finalists in November with the winner being selected in early December.

 

Stille Nominated for Wuerffel Trophy

Lincoln – University of Nebraska defensive linemen Ben Stille was announced Thursday as one of the candidates for the 2019 Wuerffel Trophy. The Wuerffel Trophy is awarded to the FBS player that best combines exemplary community service with athletic and academic achievement.

 

It is the second watch list for Stille, who was named to the Allstate AFCA Good Works Team® watch list last week. Stille is one of seven Big Ten players on the 86-member list.

 

Stille has been active in the Huskers’ Life Skills program, volunteering his time with the FCA, Husker Heroes, TeamMates, the Nebraska Football Road Race and local hospital visits. For his efforts, he received the Sam Foltz Hero 27 Leadership Award earlier this spring, and was named to the Tom Osborne and Brook Berringer Citizenship teams for the past three years. Earlier this year, he was also involved in the Husker football team’s efforts for raise money for flood relief victims following the spring floods across Nebraska.

 

The semifinalists for the award will be announced on November 5 and finalists will be announced on November 18. The formal announcement of the 2019 recipient will be made at the National Football Foundation's festivities in New York City on December 10.
