For the past two seasons, MTSU quarterback Brent Stockstill has been rewriting the Blue Raider record books.
The college football world has taken notice as Stockstill was one of only four players in Conference USA named to the Maxwell Award watch list last week.
The Maxwell Award is given annually to the top player in college football.
"It is an honor to even be on a list with some of the top football players in the country," Stockstill said in a release. "I appreciate the recognition for our program."
The Murfreesboro native and former Siegel High standout ranks 21st in the nation in career passing yards among active players (7,279). He already owns school records for touchdown passes (61), 300-yard passing games (14) and passing yards per game (303.3).
Stockstill is ranked as the third-highest returning quarterback in college football this season by Pro Football Focus, right behind Baker Mayfield of Oklahoma and Mason Rudolph of Oklahoma State.
The 2016 season was somewhat unsatisfying for the 6-foot-1 junior. He threw for 3,233 yards and 31 touchdowns, but missed the final three-plus games due to a broken collarbone suffered in a 45-25 loss to the University of Texas - San Antonio on November 5.
He did, however, return at the end of December for the Hawaii Bowl against Hawaii. Stockstill picked up right where he left off, completing 30-of-51 passes for an MTSU bowl record 422 yards and four touchdowns.
