PHILADELPHIA, Pennsylvania -- Texas A&M’s Kellen Mond has been named to the 2019 Maxwell Award Watch List, announced Monday by the Maxwell Football Club.
Mond, a junior quarterback from San Antonio, Texas, tallied over 30 touchdowns a season ago as he saw an increase in every statistical category from his freshman campaign. The right-hander finished fourth in total offense, fifth in touchdowns through the air and sixth in passing yardage in the Southeastern Conference.
