Three Terps named to preseason award watch lists

Three Maryland football players have been named to preseason award watch lists.

Seniors Adrian Moten and Alex Wujciak have been named to the watch list for the Butkus Award, given to the top linebacker in the country.

Moten, who attended Gwynn Park High, has 13 career sacks and 18 tackles for loss, which are tops on the team. He started every game last season and had 68 tackles, which ranked second on the team, and had a team-leading six sacks.

Wujciak was a first-team all-ACC choice last season after registering a team-high 131 tackles. At 10.9 tackles per game, he ranked second in the ACC and eighth nationally.

Junior wide receiver Torrey Smith is a candidate for the Paul Hornung Award, given to the nation's most versatile player. He was named a preseason all-ACC selection at both wide receiver and kick returner after grabbing 61 catches for 824 yards and five touchdowns as a sophomore. Smith, also a candidate for the Biletnikoff Award given to the nation's top wide receiver, set the league’s single-season kickoff return yards record in each of the last two years. He ranks first in Maryland history and third in ACC history in career kickoff return yards (2,398) and ranks fifth on the Maryland career all-purpose yards list (3,617).
