KU's Reesing Named To Walter Camp Award Watch List
Aug. 7, 2009
LAWRENCE, Kan. – Kansas quarterback Todd Reesing had his name added to another national award watch list when he was tabbed to the 2009 Walter Camp Player of the Year Watch List Friday.
Reesing has already been placed on watch lists for the Davey O’Brien (nation’s top quarterback) and Johnny Unitas (top senior quarterback) Awards this preseason.
The Walter Camp award recognizes the best college football player in the nation and is the fourth-oldest individual college football honor. Reesing is one of 30 players on the list and one of 10 quarterbacks.
Only four quarterbacks in the country returning this year have averaged more than Reesing’s 261.3 career passing yards per game. In addition only five quarterbacks nationally return having thrown more than Reesing’s 68 career touchdown passes and average of 21.3 completions per game.
Reesing enters the 2009 season ranked among Big 12 Conference career leaders. With one more season to play, Reesing already ranks seventh in career touchdown passes (68), 10th in career completions percentage (64.1), 10th in lowest interception percentage (2.3 percent), and 10th in career total offensive yards (8,105).
He shares the league record for consecutive pass attempts without an interception with 213 in a stretch during 2007 (tied with Reggie McNeal of Texas A&M).
The senior from Austin, Texas has rewritten the Kansas record books while starting 26 games in the last two seasons. He has guided KU to a combined 20-6 record in the last two years while passing for 3,486 yards as a sophomore and 3,888 as a junior.
