Houston quarterback named to Maxwell Award watch list

University of Houston quarterback Greg Ward Jr. was named to the preseason watch list for the Maxwell Award.

Ward is one of three quarterbacks on the list, and is one of seven returning semifinalists.

Ward, who ranked ninth nationally in completion percentage, enters the 2016 season after having just won the Earl Campbell Award. He became the first Houston quarterback to rush for 1,000 yards in a season, finishing the season with 1,108 rushing yards and 21 touchdowns, and 2,828 passing yards with 17 touchdowns.

Ward completed 232 of 345 passes last season, throwing just six interceptions -- the seventh best nationally among quarterbacks. He also broke the record for rushing yards by a quarterback, which had been set by Lionel Wilson in 1981.

Ward ranks fourth on Houston's career rushing touchdowns and leads Houston with a .905 career-winning percentage as starting quarterback. With 21 rushing touchdowns in 2015, he ranks only second nationally among all returners behind the 22 from Louisiana State University's Leondard Fournette.

Ward is also the recipient of the American Championship MVP and the Chick-fil-A Peach Bowl Offensive MVP and was a Manning Award finalist.

The Maxwell Award is presented annually to the nation's top player by the Maxwell Football Club.
