Mountaineers continue to earn pre-season recognition

Just a day after Will Grier and Justin Crawford earned preseason All-Big 12 honors, two more

Mountaineers earned national recognition. The Football Writers Association of America

recognized Senior offensive lineman Kyle Bosch and redshirt Junior safety Dravon Askew-

Henry.

Coming off of a season-ending injury last season, Askew-Henry has been named to the Bronko

Nagurski trophy watch list. The Bronko Nagurski award is awarded to college football’s best

defensive player. Catching the attention of the FWAA with his first two seasons in Morgantown,

Askew-Henry started in his first 26 games. The redshirt junior accounted for 83 tackles and

three interceptions in 2014 and 2015. The Pennsylvania native looking to have a bounce back

year, will anchor the West Virginia secondary. Finalist for the Nagurski award will be announced

Nov. 16.

Bosch was named to the Outland Trophy watch list, awarded to the top interior offensive

lineman in college football. The senior from St. Charles, IL, was All-Big 12 honorable mention

last season for the Mountaineers. Bosch also apart of an offensive line last season that gave up

the second fewest sacks in the Big 12. Returning as the veteran and anchor of the WVU

offensive line, Bosch will look to have a similar impact as last season. The 72nd winner of the

Outland trophy will be awarded Dec. 7 on ESPN at the College Football Awards in Atlanta, GA.
