    Junior Michael Bush and sophomore Brian Brohm of the University of Louisville were named to the  2005 Watch Lists for the 69th Maxwell Award for the Collegiate Player of the Year. The respective watch lists include a field of fifty candidates  as selected by the Maxwell Football Club Advisory Committee. Additions and subtractions to the lists, based on player performance, will be made through out the 2005 football season.

    Bush, who enters the season as starter at running, is coming off his best season with the Cardinals. The 245-pounder from Louisville, Ky., rushed for 734 yards and seven touchdowns, guiding the the Cardinals to an 11-1 record and a win in the AutoZone Liberty Bowl.

    Brohm takes over as the starter this season, after earning playing time as a true freshman. The Conference USA Freshman of the Year, Brohm threw for 819 yards and six touchdowns in 11 games. He completed 67.3 percent of throws and tossed touchdown passes in five of 11 games.

    Players selected to these initial watch lists have distinguished themselves as All Conference or All American selections from their respective universities in past years. Underclassmen are selected based on recommendations from the Maxwell Football Club Advisory Committee.

     The Maxwell and Bednarik Award Watch Lists have been created as a reference to provide additional assistance to eligible voters and to the media when evaluating potential candidates for these awards. The watch lists are not intended to represent an all-inclusive listing of candidates for the collegiate awards presented by the Maxwell Football Club of Philadelphia. Candidates are listed in alphabetical order with the player's position, class and university noted.

    Ten semi-finalists for each award will be announced in October 2005 and the field will be trimmed to three finalists in November 2005. The winners of the Maxwell and Bednarik Awards will be announced at the Home Depot College Football Awards Show that will be broadcast on ESPN in December 2005. The formal presentation of the Maxwell and Bednarik Awards will take place at the Maxwell Football Club Awards Banquet in February 2006.

    All questions or concerning these Watch Lists or the awards presented by the Maxwell Football Club can be directed to Mr. Robert Clark (Maxwell Football Club Executive Director), or to Mr. Mark Wolpert (Sr. Vice President Collegiate Awards)
