C.J. Stroud is a finalist for another national award.
One day after Stroud was named one of three finalists for both the Maxwell Award and the Davey O’Brien Award, Stroud was named one of five finalists for the Walter Camp Player of the Year. Like the Maxwell Award and the Heisman Trophy, the Walter Camp Player of the Year honors the best player in college football.
Stroud is up for the award along with Michigan running back Blake Corum, TCU quarterback Max Duggan, Tennessee quarterback Hendon Hooker and USC quarterback Caleb Williams.

The Ohio State quarterback makes the list of finalists after completing 66.2% of his passes this season for 3,340 yards and 37 touchdowns with six interceptions, good for the best passer rating (176.25) among all FBS quarterbacks during the regular season.
The winner of the Walter Camp Player of the Year award will be announced on Dec. 8 during ESPN’s Home Depot College Football Awards Show, which is when the Maxwell and Davey O’Brien winners will also be revealed.
Stroud was also a finalist for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, which honors the top upperclassman quarterback in college football, but Duggan was named the winner of that award on Wednesday.
