Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron was named one of 15 semifinalists for the Walter Camp Award (best player) and one of five finalists for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award (best fourth- or fifth-year quarterback) Wednesday.

It was a busy day on the awards front for A.J. McCarron Wednesday.

The Alabama quarterback was named as one of 15 semifinalists for the Walter Camp Award and one of five finalists for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award.

McCarron is one of three SEC players up for the Walter Camp Award, which honors the nation’s best college football player. Others include Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel and Georgia linebacker Jarvis Jones. The winner will be announced on Nov. 28.

The junior is the SEC’s lone ranger up for the Johnny Unitas Golden Arm Award, which honors the best fourth- or fifth-year quarterback in the country. Others up for the award are Kansas State’s Collin Klein, USC’s Matt Barkley, West Virginia’s Geno Smith and Florida State’s E.J. Manuel. The winner will be announced on Dec. 7.

Former Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck won both of these awards last year.

McCarron has thrown for 2,158 yards and 20 touchdowns with only two interceptions through 10 games this season. Before Alabama lost to Texas A&M Saturday, he had a streak of 291 pass attempts without an interception. McCarron is also a semifinalist for the Maxwell (top player) and Davey O’Brien (top quarterback) awards.
