FORT WORTH, TEXAS — Tar Heel senior quarterback Bryn Renner was named to the 2013 Davey O’Brien Award Watch List on Wednesday.

This preseason nomination is Renner’s second, having also been named to the Maxwell Award list on July 8.

The O’Brien Award goes to the nation’s most outstanding college signal caller at the close of the season.

Renner will also be looking to stake his claim to some UNC football records in 2013 following a prolific 2012 campaign featuring 3,356 yards and a school-record 28 touchdowns. Entering his senior season, Renner trails T.J. Yates and Darian Durant in all four major passing categories.
