Baker Mayfield wins Maxwell Award

Baker Mayfield wins Maxwell Award

The big victor was Oklahoma quarterback Baker Mayfield, who won both the Walter Camp, Davey O'Brien and Maxwell Awards. The Heisman Trophy victor will be named Saturday night, with Mayfield, Love and Louisville quarterback Lamar Jackson the three finalists.

Mayfield beat out Penn State running back Saquon Barkley and Stanford running back Bryce Love to win the award.

The Sooners' QB threw for 4,340 yards this season to go with 41 touchdowns and just five interceptions.

Mayfield was named the recipient of the 2017 Walter Camp Football Player of the Year. Jason White won in back-to-back years in 2003 and 2004, while Sam Bradford earned the title in 2008. "Obviously, I'm very happy and thankful that I'm being recognized with this".




"I'm on this awards trip right now with a lot of great players from OU and other schools, and every one of them deserves to be recognized".

The Big 12 enjoyed a solid awards night, as Oklahoma State's James Washington won the Biletnikoff Award that is given to the nation's top wide receiver and Texas' Michael Dickson won the Ray Guy Award (nation's top punter). "The Hornung Award is not only honoring the most versatile player in college football, but is also recognizing one of the best people in college football".

He has 129 career touchdown passes and 14,320 yards.

Mayfield is also up for the Maxwell Player of the Year award and the Davey O'Brien National Quarterback Award, as well as the Heisman Trophy. Those three awards were presented to him Thursday night at ESPN's college football awards show in Atlanta.
