COLUMBIA, MO. – University of Missouri standout football players Evan Boehm (Lee’s Summit, Mo.) and Markus Golden (St. Louis, Mo.) have been named to pre-season award watch lists for a pair of prominent national awards, as announced today.
Boehm, a junior center, has been named to the Outland Trophy Watch List as one of 64 players up for the award, which goes to the nation’s top interior linemen on either side of the ball. This is the second national award to include Boehm, who has started all 26 games for the Tigers the past two years. On Tuesday, he was named to the watch list for the Rimington Award, which is given annually to the nation’s top center.
Golden, a senior defensive end, has been included on the watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy, which goes annually to the nation’s top defensive player overall. He is one of 81 standouts named to the pre-season list. Golden was one of the most disruptive defensive ends in the Southeastern Conference in 2013, despite playing only roughly 40 percent of the snaps (55 tackles, 13.0 tackles for loss, 6.5 sacks, 8 QB pressures).
Both Boehm and Golden, along with projected starting quarterback Maty Mauk (sophomore, Kenton, Ohio) will be representing Mizzou at the annual SEC Football Media Day event next week in Hoover, Ala. Mizzou’s appearance is scheduled for Wednesday, July 16th. Preseason camp for the Tigers gets underway on Monday, August 4th, with the annual Fan/Photo Day at Memorial Stadium/Faurot Field set for Sunday, August 10th.
