RUSTON, La. (KNOE 8 Sports & AP) - Louisiana Tech running back Kenneth Dixon has been named to the Doak Walker Award Watch List. The award is presented annually to the nation's top college running back.

Dixon was a 2012 Freshman All-America selection as he led the nation averaging 14.0 points per game. The Strong, Ark. native set NCAA Freshman records last season with rushing touchdowns (27), total touchdowns (28) and total points scored (168). All three of those records were held by Marshall Faulk before Dixon broke them.

The field of candidates is also highlighted by University of Arizona running back Ka'Deem Carey. Carey, a junior from Tucson, Arizona, led the nation with 1,929 rushing yards last season. Other nominees include 2012 Doak Walker Award semifinalists David Fluellen (Toledo) and Venric Mark (Northwestern).
