Stop me if you've heard this before: Arizona Wildcats running back Ka'Deem Carey has been named to a preseason award watch list.

Last week, it was the Maxwell Player of the Year Award. Yesterday, it was the Doak Walker Award--handed out to the best running back in the country. Today, the Canyon del Oro High School graduate was named to the watch list for the Walter Camp Player of the Year.

Carey was named a Walter Camp first-team All-American last season after leading the nation in rushing with 1,929 yards as a sophomore.

Now he's up for the top Camp honor.

Carey was one of nine Pac-12 players named to the list. The winner of the Walter Camp Award will be announced live on ESPN on Dec. 12. The winner will then receive the trophy on Jan. 11 at the foundation's annual national awards banquet at Yale in New Haven, Conn.

On top of being named to the three watch lists this preseason, Carey has also been named to Athlon Sports' preseason All-American team and to Phil Steele's preseason All-American second team.

Carey will begin his quest to backup the preseason accolades on Aug. 30 when the UA hosts NAU in its season opener.
