ATHENS, Ga. --- Georgia redshirt sophomore quarterback Aaron Murray has been named to the Davey O’Brien Award Watch List, according to an announcement by the Davey O'Brien Foundation on Friday.

The O’Brien Award is given annually to the nation’s top quarterback. The O'Brien honors candidates who exemplify Davey O'Brien's enduring character while exhibiting teamwork, sportsmanship and leadership in both academics and athletics.

Murray, a native of Tampa, Fla., was tabbed a Freshman All-American following last season when he set a UGA freshman record with 3,049 passing yards, which ranks second in SEC history for freshmen. Murray's passing efficiency of 154.48 was also the best in the country among all freshmen quarterbacks and second best in school history among all quarterbacks.

Murray has already been named to the Maxwell Award Watch List and the College Football Performance Awards Quarterbacks Watch List.
