Ball State Sr. RB MiQuale Lewis has recently been named to his second award watch list for the upcoming season.

MiQuale Lewis, a senior RB on the Ball State University football team, has been named to the Walter Camp Football Foundation Player of the Year Watch List.

The Walter Camp Football Foundation Player of the Year Award is the nation's fourth oldest individual college football accolade. The list will be narrowed to 10 semifinalists in early November. The winner is selected by the 119 NCAA Football Bowl Subdivision head coaches and sports information directors.

Lewis, who earlier this month was named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List which goes to the nation's top college running back, was a 2008 All-Mid-American Conference First Team selection. He rushed for a Ball State single-season record 1,736 yards last season. Lewis led the Cardinals and ranked seventh in the nation in scoring with 9.43 points per game plus was fifth in the nation with 124.0 rushing yards a contest. Lewis set the Ball State school record for most 100-yard rushing games in a season with 11 and set school standards for single season touchdowns (22) and points (132). He became the eighth player in Ball State history to log a 1,000-yard rushing campaign, and became only the 10th player in Cardinals' history to rush for at least 2,000 yards in a career.

The Cardinals open the 2009 season Thurs., Sept. 3, at home vs. North Texas. The 7:30 p.m. contest will be aired live from Scheumann Stadium on ESPNU. The game also marks Cardinal Varsity Club Day presented by ProLiance Energy. To buy tickets, log on to
