Spencer Sanders Named to Walter Camp Player of the Year Watch List

July 29, 2022

STILLWATER – Oklahoma State quarterback Spencer Sanders has just been named to the Walter Camp Player of the Year watch list, which was announced Friday morning by the Walter Camp Football Foundation.

This is the third preseason watch list for Sanders entering the 2022 season, as he was also named to the Maxwell Award and Davey O’Brien Award watch lists.

Sanders is one of 52 players from around college football to be named to the list, including one of nine from the Big 12.

The redshirt senior out of Denton (TX) Ryan enters the 2022 season as the returning first team All-Big 12 quarterback. He helped lead the Pokes to a 12-2 overall finish in 2021, which included multiple wins over ranked opponents, including Texas, Oklahoma and Notre Dame.

Sanders finished his 2021 campaign on a high note with a comeback 37-35 win over No. 5 Notre Dame in the Fiesta Bowl, which included him going 34-of-52 for 371 yards and four touchdowns through the air and 17 carries for 125 yards. For his efforts, Sanders was named the Fiesta Bowl Offensive MVP.

On the season, Sanders finished with 2,839 passing yards and 20 touchdowns and 146 carries for 668 yards and six touchdowns.

According to Oklahoma State athletic media relations, Sanders is just eight wins shy of tying Mason Rudolph’s record for most wins as an OSU starting quarterback, a feat which should be reached this season.

His 6,911 career passing yards ranks in the top 10 among all returning Power Five quarterbacks this season.

Sanders will have his chance to try and impress voters beginning on Thursday, September 1 as the Pokes start the 2022 season off with Central Michigan. Kickoff is scheduled for 6 p.m. CT on FS1.
