ATHENS, Ohio - Ohio University football junior Tyler Tettleton was named to the 2012 College Football Performance Awards - Quarterback Watch List on Monday.
Tettleton was among 33 players nationally and just four players throughout the Mid-American Conference, who were selected to the Watch List for the 2012 CFPA Quarterback Trophy.
The Oklahoma native received the preseason honor after he authored one of the finest seasons in school history by an Ohio quarterback last year. In 2011, Tettleton set 12 single season records, while in the process he became the first quarterback in school history to throw for over 3,000 yards. The Ohio signal-caller also accounted for 38 touchdowns, passing for 28 and rushing for 10.
Following the year, Tettleton earned All-MAC Third Team, Phil Steele All-MAC Third Team and CollegeSportsMadness.com All-MAC Third Team honors.
Ohio opens the 2012 campaign at Penn State in front of a nationally-televised audience on ESPN. The game time for the Bobcats' regular-season finale against Kent State, which will air on ESPNU/ESPN3, will be announced as soon as it becomes available.
