Posted: Updated:

Every Dawg has its day, and a former Bullpup may have that day in 2013.  Gonzaga Prep graduate Bishop Sankey has been named to the preseason watch list for the Doak Walker Award, given to the nation's top collegiate running back.

Sankey, a sophomore for the Washington Huskies, rushed for 1,439 yards and 16 touchdowns last season.  Greg Lewis is the last Husky to win the award, back in 1990.  This year's award will be presented on December 12th.  Washington will open the 2013 season against Boise State on August 31st.
