ATHENS - Georgia sophomore quarterback Matthew Stafford is one of 35 players named to the 2007 Davey O’Brien Watch List, the Davey O’Brien Foundation announced.

The Davey O’Brien Award, given annually to the nation’s best quarterback, honors the legacy of former TCU quarterback Davey O’Brien, the first player ever to win the Heisman, Maxwell and Walter Camp trophies in the same year. It is the country’s oldest award for college quarterbacks.

Stafford played in all 13 games for Georgia last year, starting in eight and completing 135-of-256 passes for 1,749 yards and 13 touchdowns. He was voted SEC All-Freshman by the league’s coaches.

Semifinalists for the O’Brien Award will be announced in late October as voted on by the Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award Selection Committee, which is comprised of prestigious journalists and previous winners. The field will be narrowed to three finalists, and the winner will be announced on ESPN’s Home Depot College Football Awards Show on Dec. 6.

Stafford and the Bulldogs open the 2007 season against Oklahoma State at Sanford Stadium on Sept. 1.
