Four ACC players from the Triangle - Duke lineman Vince Oghobaase (pictured), UNC safety Deunta Williams and linebacker Quan Sturdivant,  and N.C. State lineman Willie Young - are on the 62-man watch list for the Bronko Nagurski Trophy.

Wake Forest's Boo Robinson is the other ACC defensive lineman on the list for the award, given annually to the nation's best defensive player by the Charlotte Touchdown Club and the Football Writers Association of America.

The Football Writers Association will choose a national defensive player of the week each week during the season, and if the player is not on the watch list his name is added.

A list of five finalists will be named by Nov. 19, with the recipient announced at the annual Bronko Nagurski Trophy banquet Dec. 7 in Charlotte.
