UNLV Charles Williams named to the Maxwell Award Watch List

UNLV senior running back Charles Williams is one of just 91 players in the nation named to the Maxwell Award Watch List, which was released by the Maxwell Football Club Friday.

The award is given to college football’s top player at the end of each season. LSU quarterback Joe Burrow won last year’s Maxwell Award.

Williams is just the second Rebel in the last six years to earn a spot on the prestigious annual list, joining former UNLV quarterback Armani Rogers in 2018.

Williams was previously named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List and a member of the official Preseason All-Mountain West Team. The “Chuck Wagon” was just the fourth UNLV player to have won a conference regular-season rushing title, finished with 1,257 yards and 11 touchdowns as a junior last fall. He heads into his final season ranked seventh in school history with 2,445 yards and needs 555 more to become just the fourth Rebel to reach 3,000 yards on the ground.

The Maxwell Award, named in honor of Robert W. “Tiny” Maxwell, has been given to America’s College Player of the Year since 1937. The watch list candidates were chosen by the Maxwell Football Club’s selection committee, which analyzes both past performance and future potential. All members of the Maxwell Football Club, NCAA sports information directors, FBS head coaches and selected national media are eligible to vote for the awards.

Semifinalists for the Maxwell Award will be announced Nov. 3 while the three finalists will be unveiled Nov. 23. The winners of the award will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show held Dec. 10, with the formal presentation taking place in Atlantic City March 12, 2021.

UNLV season tickets are on sale now by calling (702) 739-FANS or visiting unlvtickets.com.
