College Football Awards 2012: Boston College LB Kevin Pierre-Louis Named To Nagurski Watch List

College football is right around the corner. Fans are starting to see a trickle of gridiron news this week with the release of preseason watch lists for the sport's major awards. On Thursday, the preseason list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy was released, featuring Boston College linebacker Kevin Pierre-Louis.

The Nagurski Trophy is one of several awards recognizing the country's top defensive player. Pierre-Louis certainly possesses the qualifications to compete for that honor. This year will be his third season as the Eagles' starting outside linebacker, and he assumes a more prominent leadership role on the defense after Luke Kuechly bolted for the NFL.

In 2010, Pierre-Louis was a Freshman All-American, collecting 93 tackles. Last year, he missed three games with injury, but still finished second on the team with 73 tackles. Range is his game, and he can move effortlessly to find the ballcarrier.
