WVU TE Brian Polendey Named to Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Watch List



West Virginia football tight end Brian Polendey was named to the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award watch list as announced by the team on Twitter earlier today.

The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award goes to the top offensive player in the country, both on and off the field as voted on by Texas based journalists. Last year’s winner was Western Kentucky QB Bailey Zappe.

Polendey is a transfer from Colorado State and figured to split time with Mike O’Laughlin with Polendey being primarily used as the pass catcher  and O’Laughlin used as a blocker.

Both have gotten praise this off-season. In addition to Polendey’s Tyler Rose watch list, O’Laughlin has been named to the Mackey Award watch list and a third team pre-season All-Big 12 nod from Phil Steele.

O’Laughlin though has dealt with an injury early in training camp that limited him in week one. He is unlikely to miss the season opener.
