n Marshall’s Cato on Maxwell list
PHILADELPHIA — Marshall junior quarterback Rakeem Cato was named to the 77th Maxwell Award Watch List on Monday by the Maxwell Football Club.
Cato, who last season was the first underclassman in Conference USA history to be named the league’s Most Valuable Player, led the nation in completions (406) and passing yards per game (350.08). His 37 touchdown passes ranked third nationally, while his 69.5 percent completion rate was fourth and his 352.67 yards of total offense per game stood fifth. He also led the league in pass efficiency (147.1).
His 66.2 percent career completion mark (588-of-888) is currently a school record, just ahead of Herd legends Chad Pennington (65.1) and Byron Leftwich (63.4).
Cato is the first Marshall player to be named to the Maxwell list since running back Darius Marshall was added to it in October of the 2009 season after he led the nation in rushing and all-purpose yardage through the first five games.
