A-State’s Hansen Tabbed to O’Brien Award Watch List

July 17, 2018

JONESBORO, Ark. (7/17/18) – Arkansas State senior quarterback Justice Hansen has been named to the 2018 Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award Watch list.

Hansen, who was also recently named to the Maxwell Award Watch list, enters his senior season ranked second in the nation among active players with an average of 267.4 yards per game. He also ranks sixth nationally in total offense per game (289.6) and touchdown passes (56), while also ranking eighth in career passing yards (6,686) and ninth in total offense (7,239).

The Oklahoma native is coming off a junior campaign that saw him receive a combined 10 conference and national weekly awards following six different games, including a two-time Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Week, a two-time Manning Award Star of the Week nominee, a Davy O’Brien “Great 8” Performer of the week, a College Football Performance Awards National Performer of the Week and a four-time College Sports Madness Sun Belt Conference Offensive Player of the Week.

Hansen is the fourth quarterback in A-State history to be named to the Davy O’Brien Watch List and the first since 2015.

The Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award is presented annually to the nation’s best college quarterback and is the oldest and most prestigious national quarterback award. Appearing on the watch list is not a requirement for a player to win the award. Quarterbacks from all 130 NCAA Division I Football Bowl Subdivision (FBS) schools are eligible.

Season tickets for the Red Wolves’ 2018 football campaign, which includes six home games, are available for purchase.
