Walter Camp Award: The 2011 Watch List (PHOTOS)

The Walter Camp award is an annual honor, given out by the Walter Camp Foundation to college football's player of the year. The foundation is comprised of a collection of NCAA football head coaches, as well as athletic directors.

On Tuesday, the foundation released its watch list for the 2011 award, which included most of the top players in college football.

It should be noted that the winner of the 2010 award, Auburn star quarterback Cam Newton, was not on the watch list prior to last season.
