LSU's Derrius Guice was named a preseason candidate for the Doak Walker award which is presented annually to the nation’s top college running back.

This is Guice's third time landing on a preseason watch list as he was named to the Maxwell and Hornung Award Watch List last week. Per

Guice heads into the 2017 season as one of the most electric ball carriers in the country. The Baton Rouge native broke two school records, earned All-America honors and was named to the All-SEC first team by the league’s coaches and media.

The Baton Rouge native scored on the longest run in LSU history (96 yards) and set the single-game rushing record with 285 yards in the win over Texas A&M. Guice led the SEC in rushing yards and ranked second in the league in rushing yards per game.

Another day, another list. A lesser man would get the bighead and probably have a crappy season. But Derrius seems to be well grounded and always seems to say the right thing. I think he will thrive on the attention and actually play better, if that's possible! Loving us some Guice!
