Stanford quarterback Kevin Hogan was among 24 football players named to the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award watch list. “He has made some big-time throws during his career, and he’s a guy his teammates trust to make a play when the game is on the line”.

He and Chris McCoy are the only two players in school history to rush for more than 200 yards in a game twice in the same season in two different years.
