Doege Named to Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Watch List

West Virginia junior quarterback Jarret Doege has been named to the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award Watch List.

The Eral Campbell Tyler Rose Award is given to the top offensive player in Division I who also exhibits the “enduring characteristics” of Earl Campbell. Those characteristics are integrity, performance, teamwork, sportsmanship, drive, community and tenacity.

Doege transferred to WVU from Bowling Green State University prior to the start of last season. The NCAA granted him a transfer waiver, making him immediately eligible to play, but he was not completely healthy at the start of the season and it was decided he would redshirt.

Under the NCAA’s redshirt rules, Doege saw time in the final four games of the season, starting three. In those games he threw for 818 yards and seven touchdowns to just three interceptions. He also led the Mountaineers to road victories against Kansas State and TCU.

WVU head coach Neal Brown has yet to name a starter for the upcoming season, saying the battle is between Doege and senior Austin Kendall, who started the first nine games last year.
