Trey Lance has been named to the Manning Award Watch list

Trey Lance Train
All Aboard the Trey Lance Train!!! Trey Lance has been named to the Manning Award Watch List.

The Manning Award was created by the All State Sugar Bowl to honor Archie, Peyton and Eli Manning. Today, small school quarterback Trey Lance was named to the watch list for the award.

The list includes 30 of the top college quarterbacks in the nation heading into the 2020 football season.

It is pretty impressive to say the least, because Trey Lance did not throw an interception last year. He led the NDSU Bison to the National Championship and they won. He also was named FCS Offensive Player of the Year. Daniel Jeremiah is not the only one high on Lance. We at Draft Diamonds are high on him as well.

I think this is perfectly written by the NDSU website so I am going to give them credit. This sums up the kid.

Lance, a sophomore from Marshall, Minn., was the 2019 Walter Payton Award and Jerry Rice Award winner as the FCS offensive player and freshman of the year, respectively. He led the FCS with a school-record 180.6 pass efficiency rating and set the NCAA all-divisions record for most passing attempts in a complete season without an interception (287). Lance passed for 28 touchdowns, rushed for 1,100 yards and 14 touchdowns, and had a school-record 3,886 yards of total offense while leading the Bison to the first 16-0 season in college football since 1894.

Trey Lance is a beast, remember his name!
