Maryland quarterback Taulia Tagovailoa was named to the preseason watch list for Maxwell Award, it was announced Monday. It marked the third straight season in which he has been selected to the list.
The Maxwell Award is given annually to the top player in the country regardless of position. USC quarterback Caleb Williams, also the recipient of the Heisman Trophy, was the 2022 awardee.
Tagovailoa has already set multiple Maryland career passing records, including yards and touchdowns. He also helped lead the Terps to two straight bowl victories in 2021 and 2022.
The redshirt senior was one of 11 Big Ten players — and three quarterbacks in the conference — named to the watch list.
