LOGAN, Utah - Utah State senior linebacker Brent Passey is listed as a candidate for the Bronko Nagurski Award which will be presented to America's best defensive college football player. Passey is one of 36 players on the preseason watch list.
On Dec. 4 at the Adam's Mark in Charlotte, the 2000 Bronko Nagurski Trophy will be presented by the Charlotte Touchdown Club, a non-profit organization whose primary purpose is to raise scholarship money for area high school and college football players. Lou Holtz will be the keynote speaker this year (Bobby Bowden did the honors last year with Virginia Tech's Corey Moore winning the '99 Bronko Nagurski Trophy).
Passey, is a two-time first-team all-Big West selection and enters the 2000 season just 13 tackles shy of 10th place on USU's career tackle list. Last year the 6-1, 227-pound senior from Mesa, Ariz. led the Big West Conference in tackles per game at 12.9. He recorded 142 total tackles for the sixth most in a season in school history.
