Navy QB Dobbs on Walter Camp Award watch list

The Walter Camp Football Foundation named Navy quarterback Ricky Dobbs one of 30 players on the watch list for its 2010 Player of the Year Award. The award is the nation's fourth-oldest individual college football accolade; this year's winner will be announced Dec. 9. Alabama junior running back Mark Ingram, a 2009 Walter Camp first-team All-American, headlines the watch list. Ingram rushed for 1,658 yards and 17 touchdowns a year ago as the Crimson Tide captured the BCS national title. The watch list will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists in early November. The 2010 Walter Camp Player of the Year recipient, which is voted on by the 120 NCAA Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors, will be announced Dec. 9. The winner will then receive his trophy at the foundation's annual national awards banquet Jan. 15 at Yale.

Not a rookie performance. Mike is going to be a force."
