Catalon Named to Doak Walker Award Watch List
July 17, 2014
DALLAS -- TCU tailback B.J. Catalon has been named to the watch list for the 2014 Doak Walker Award, presented to the nation's top running back.
An Academic All-Big 12 honoree last year, Catalon ran for 569 yards to become the first Horned Frog to top TCU in rushing in back-to-back seasons since Joseph Turner (2007-09). Catalon totaled six rushing touchdowns while leading TCU tailbacks with 11 receptions.
A junior from Houston, Catalon was one of four players nationally last season with both a rushing touchdown and kickoff return for a touchdown.
Catalon was honorable-mention All-Big 12 as a kickoff returner, when he placed second in the conference and 16th nationally with his 26.5 return average. His 100-yard kickoff return for a touchdown against LSU tied for second longest in TCU history while setting an AT&T Stadium record for a collegiate game.
Catalon is also on the watch list for the Paul Hornung Award.
TCU great and 2014 College Football Hall of Fame selection LaDainian Tomlinson was the 2000 recipient of the Doak Walker Award.
