July 22, 2019 - 8:57 am

Oregon Ducks' linebacker Troy Dye is on yet another preseason award watch list, his third this season. 

The second team All-Pac 12 player was among 51 players on the watch list for the Butkus award. It's awarded annually to the country's best linebacker. It should be no surprise to Oregon fans. He's been the team's leading tackler in each of the last three seasons. Dye will need to keep that rate of play up if he hopes to get more national attention.
