Kentucky senior linebacker Josh Forrest is one of 80 players named to the Chuck Bednarik Award Watch List, the Maxwell Football Club announced this morning. The Chuck Bednarik Award is given annually to the nation’s top defensive player, regardless of position.
Forrest led Kentucky in tackles last season as a junior, recording 110 tackles with one sack, two interceptions and a forced fumble. The in-state product racked up a career-high 20 tackles against Tennessee, in addition to four other games with double-digit tackles.
Phil Steele named Forrest a 2014 third-team All-SEC selection.
