Duke Johnson named to fourth preseason watch list

Duke Johnson may have been speaking for all of Hurricanes Nation last night when he posted the following tweet...

Good news Duke, the dog days of summer are almost over. You and your teammates will be back out on the field soon. And hey, the Atlantic Coast Conference Media meetings are next week. So we'll get to hear from coach Al Golden, quarterback Stephen Morris and defensive end Shayon Green real soon.

In the meantime, Duke, more accolades for you.

Friday, the budding young star tailback and 2012 ACC Rookie of the Year, was named to his fourth preseason watch list when the Walter Camp Football Foundation named him one of the 50 on its list. Johnson was a second-team Walter Camp All-American last year and now one of four from the ACC -- Clemson quarterback Tajh Boyd, Virginia Tech quarterback Logan Thomas and Clemson receiver Sammy Watkins were the others -- in the hunt for the big award this year.

Johnson is also on the watch list for the Paul Hornung Award (most versatile player in college football), the Maxwell Award (college player of the year) and the Doak Walker Award (best running back).

We also hear Chuck Norris and the Most Interesting Man in the World from Dos Equis don't believe they could tackle Duke.
