McDowell graduate and Pitt sophomore running back James Conner has made another pre-season awards list in college football. Conner has been named to the Doak Walker Awards list, given to the nation's top running back. A couple weeks ago, Conner was named to the Maxwell Awards list given to the player of the year and the Horning Awards list given to the most versatile player. Conner led Pitt in rushing last season with 799 yards and eight touchdowns including 229 yards against Bowling Green in the Panther's Bowl win. Zack Zwinak and Bill Belton of Penn State were also named to the Doak Walker Awards list.
