Williams, Goff Named to Watchlists
June 18, 2007
NASHVILLE, Tenn. - A pair of highly regarded senior Vanderbilt standouts, offensive tackle Chris Williams and linebacker Jonathan Goff, have been named to preseason watchlists for prestigious college football awards.
Williams, a two-year offensive line starter from Glynn, La., was added to the Outland Trophy preseason watchlist on Monday. Goff, a three-year defensive starter from Lynn, Mass., is under consideration for the Bronko Nagurski Award. Final watchlists for both awards were released Monday by the Football Writers Association of America.
Goff has developed into an elite SEC defensive presence since concluding a stellar high school career in suburban Boston. Last year, Goff ranked among the league leaders in several defensive categories, and concluded the campaign with a second team All-SEC selection by the coaches.
