University of Oregon quarterback Jeremiah Masoli has been named to the 2009 Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award® Watch List. The true junior from San Francisco is one four Pac-10 signal-callers on the list and one of 33 student-athletes overall.
Masoli is coming off of Holiday Bowl offensive MVP honors and had the highest passer rating (170.75) of any quarterback on a top 10 team over last season's final four games. During that stretch he led the Ducks to a 4-0 mark, totaling 14 touchdowns (7 rush, 7 pass) against one interception while averaging a staggering 8.7 yards per play.
Founded in 1981, the "O'Brien" is considered the college game's top quarterback honor.
