Army center and senior captain Connor Bishop was one of 89 Division I-A players named to the Outland Trophy preseason watch list Tuesday.
Bishop has started 20 games over the last two seasons. Army was 7-2 in games started by Bishop last season. Bishop is one of three starters (Connor Finucane and Boobie Law) returning to an offensive line that helped the Black Knights finished second in the nation in rushing (286 yards per game).
The Outland Trophy is awarded to the nation’s top interior lineman. Army’s Joe Steffy won the Outland Trophy in 1947.
