Church, Briggs on Nagurski watch list

UT junior safety Barry Church and Bowling Green senior defensive end Diyral Briggs are on the watch list for the 2008 Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which is awarded to the best defensive player in college football.

Here's the list.

I am on the committee this year to pick the award, and my job is to watch the Mid-American Conference closely to see if there are players who deserve to be recognized nationally on the All-America teams.

Other MAC players on the list are Northern Illinois' Larry English, Western Michigan's Londen Fryar, Miami's Clayton Mullins, Temple's Andre Neblett and Eastern Michigan's Daniel Holtzclaw.
