Liberty's Kevin Fogg and Walt Aikens are two of 40 players who have been named to the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) preseason defensive back watch list for the upcoming 2012 season.
Fogg, along with North Dakota State's Marcus Williams, were two returning athletes that were honored by the CFPA last year. In 2011, Fogg was named the CFPA Elite Kickoff Return Specialist after leading the country with three touchdown returns.
Defensively, Fogg finished the 2011 season by more than doubling his previous two seasons' tackles total. Fogg ranked seventh on the team with 45 stops and led the program with 33 solo tackles. He also tied for the team lead with four pass breakups and shared team high interception honors with Aikens after both players recorded three picks.
In his first season with the program, Aikens ranked fourth on the team with 49 tackles, including 31 solo stops. Beside his three interceptions, Aikens also led the team with three forced fumbles and had two sacks.
The CFPA watch list is a rough guide, highlighting returning players with strong individual performances. All players are eligible for recognition at their respective positions and players are not preemptively eliminated from consideration for weekly, annual or career awards.
