Kyle Van Noy, Spencer Hadley, and Uani Unga all named to Butkus Watch List


This is becoming old news for BYU Linebacker, Kyle Van Noy.  A coveted College Football award announces their 2013 watch list, odds are a Kyle Van Noy is going to be on the list.

This time two of his linebacker teammates also received a pre-season nod.

The Butkus Award announced their 2013 watch list today, and sure enough Van Noy was on the list. Along with Seniors Spencer Hadley and Uani Unga. The Butkus is awarded to the top Linebacker in College Football.

Last time BYU had a serious push for a senior linebacker going up for the Butkus was Rob “Freight Train” Morris.  Admit it, you still have your wooden train whistle from the 1999 season don’t you?

This is the third award watch list Van Noy has appeared on, and I would expect a few more before we get to fall camp next month.
