TROY, Ala (WDHN) — The Maxwell Football Club announced their watch list for the 2020 most outstanding player award today. One Troy running back had their name on that list.
B.J. Smith is coming off a season that ended rather briefly with a knee injury.
However, in the one game that Smith saw action, he carried the rock 10 times for 106 yards and a touchdown against the Campbell University Camels.
This recognition largely comes due to Smith’s impressive 2018 season of which he was awarded the 2019 Sun Belt Conference Preseason Offensive Player of the Year.
In that 2018 campaign, Smith racked up 1186 yards and 13 touchdowns. He had a five game stint where he rushed for at least one hundred yards in each of those games.
Earlier this month, Smith was added to the Doak Walker award watchlist for the best running back in the nation.
