Leno named to Outland Trophy Watch List

Boise State senior offensive tackle Charles Leno, Jr. was named to the Outland Trophy Watch List on Thursday.

The award is presented annually to the top interior lineman - offense or defense - in college football.

Leno is one of 25 offensive tackles included on the 75-player watch list. He is one of only four representatives from the Mountain West.

Leno enters the 2013 season with a string of 26 consecutive starts, the longest active streak on the Boise State football team.

Last season, Leno was named to the All-MW second team. He started all 13 games at left tackle on a unit that ranked sixth-nationally with 0.77 sacks allowed per game.

Three members of the Boise State football team have now been named to a watch list:

TE Gabe Linehan - Mackay Away (Top tight end)
DE Demarcus Lawrence - Bronko Nagursky Trophy (Top defensive player)
LT Charles Leno, Jr. - Outland Trophy (Top interior lineman)
