CHARLESTON, S.C. -
Lamar senior quarterback Caleb Berry has been named to the 2014 College Football Performance Award Watch List announced CFPA Executive Director Brad Smith Sunday afternoon. Berry is one of 36 quarterbacks on the preseason watch list.
"We would like to congratulate Caleb on earning a spot on this year's watch list," said Smith. "Berry will be one of the top Southland Conference players to watch in 2014."
Berry began to receive national attention during his junior campaign. The Needville, Texas native, recorded the best single-season performance by a signal caller in school history by setting single-season records for passing yards, completions, touchdown passes and yards of total offense. He also set LU single-game records for completions and TD passes during the 2013 season.
Following the season, Berry was recognized for his work on the field by earning second-team All-SLC honors by College Sports Madness, and honorable mention all-conference honors from the league coaches and media relations directors.
Berry enters his senior season in pursuit of several career records. He is on pace to become the school's all-time leader in all four categories, and Lamar fans may not have to wait long to see him break the first record. Berry is only two touchdown passes shy of tying John Evans' record of 40 set during the 1989 season.
The Cardinals kick off the 2014 season Saturday, Aug. 30 against Grambling State. The game against the Tigers is slated to begin at 7 p.m. from Provost Umphrey Stadium. Fans interested in purchasing season tickets can do so by clicking
