1) In a interview with Huntington Herald Dispatch, Marshall athletic director Mike Hamrick told columnist Chuck Landon that no one from the school has spoken with Michael Dyer.
Hamrick’s statement contradicts earlier reports that the Thundering Herd had shown interest in the former Auburn running back. Dyer is looking for his third school after being dismissed from the Tigers football program in 2011 and Arkansas State shortly thereafter.
2) Marshall quarterback Rakeem Cato was named to the 2013 Maxwell Award Watch List. Last year’s Conference USA Most Valuable Player, Cato passed for 4,201 yards, 37 touchdowns, and 11 interceptions. The Maxell Award has been presented to America’s College Player of the year since 1937.
3) Honoring the nation’s top colligate tight end, The John Mackey Award has added Marshall’s Gator Hoskins to its 2013 watch list. Hoskins lead all tight ends with 10 touchdown receptions last year while also catching 35 passes for 374 yards.
