The United States Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association’s (USTFCCCA) 2014 Women’s Bowerman Preseason watch list was released yesterday. This award is the Heisman Trophy of track and field. Dezerea Bryant was mentioned on the list; the first Kentucky Wildcat to be named to the list. Bryant is a junior transfer from Clemson and had an excellent career there. As a freshman, she dominated in the short sprints, both indoor and outdoor. She is also a 9 time All-American and has 9 ACC championships under her belt. I strongly believe she will be on the first regular season Bowerman watch list, which will be released on February 6th. Also, the men’s preseason Bowerman list will be released on Wednesday. With Kentucky’s first meet being on January 17th and 18th at the Kentucky Invitational, look for Bryant to have a strong showing! GO CATS!
