|Enderle on Manning Award Watch List|
You can add the Manning Award Watch List to University of Idaho quarterback Nathan Enderle's growing list of preseason recognitions.
The Manning Award, sponsored by the Allstate Sugar Bowl, added Enderle Tuesday in its planned release of one player per day through its official Facebook and Twitter pages. The award has honored the top quarterback in the nation for the past six years.
Enderle attracted attention in 2009 as he engineering the Vandals' turn-around from a two-win team to a bowl champion. Along the way, he climbed to No. 5 in the NCAA's pass efficiency rankings and is one of the top two returners in that category this fall. He also finished 2009 ranked second in the nation in yards-per-attempt (9.31), 15th in passing yards per game, 28th in total passing yards, and 45th in completions per game.
"It's a great honor to even be considered."
