AJ Dillon Named To Walter Camp Player Of The Year Watch List

A.J. Black

AJ Dillon continues to pile up the preseason accolades, this time being named to the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award Watchlist. Dillon, who was named to the list last year as well, is joined by five other ACC players including Travis Etienne, Trevor Lawrence of Clemson, Andre Cisco of Syracuse, Jonathan Garvin a DE from Miami, and Bryce Hall of UVA. 

Dillon would have to have an incredible season to win this award, but he seems determined to improve over last year's performance. Could he put together an Andre Williams-esque 2013 performance and win the award? Clearly going into this season all eyes are on Tua Tagovailoa of Alabama and Trevor Lawrence of Clemson, but could a dark horse like Dillon have a huge year?
