There sure are a lot of UCLA football players getting recognized for pre-season awards. It says a lot about a team when so many players are getting national attention and with that, respect. Several Bruins are being named for several pre-season watch lists, which is great to see if you are a Bruin fan. It also says a lot about how Head Coach Jim Mora and staff have recruited and developed a team that is expected to do big things this year.
So in order to keep track of every Bruin being named to pre-season honors, we present,’ The Go Joe Bruin “Award Watch List” List’. Redundant, yes, but at least now you will remember it. On with the list!
