ATLANTA – The Black College Football Hall of Fame announced Wednesday the 2019 Watch List for the Black College Football Player of the Year Award. The award is presented annually to the most outstanding football player from a HBCU.

Former North Carolina A&T, and current Chicago Bears running back Tarik Cohen, was selected as the inaugural recipient in 2016. Bowie State quarterback Amir Hall was the 2017 and 2018 recipient.

The winner of the award will be honored with the Deacon Jones Trophy during the Black College Football Hall of Fame Induction Ceremony on Feb. 15, 2020, in Atlanta. Four finalists will be unveiled on Dec. 3, 2019.

“There are many gifted football players competing at HBCUs right now,” said Super Bowl XXII MVP and BCFHOF co-founder, Doug Williams. “This award is a way for the Black College Football Hall of Fame to recognize these talented student-athletes.”

The Watch List candidates have been selected based on past performance and future potential. Additions to the list may be made as the season progresses. The finalists and the winner will be chosen by a selection committee.
