Lawrence named to Nagurski Watch List

Boise State junior defensive end Demarcus Lawrence was named to the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List on Thursday.

Lawrence is one of 81 individuals on the watch list, and one of just two from the Mountain West.

Lawrence was named to the All-MW first-team as a sophomore in 2012. He led the league with 9.5 sacks, tied for first with 13.5 tackles-for-loss, and ranked tied for eighth-nationally with four force fumbles.
