Southern Miss running back Frank Gore Jr. named to Maxwell Award watch list

Second year freshman running back Frank Gore Jr. is on the Maxwell Award watch list.

Big time honor for USM’s leading rusher a year ago, having racked up more than 700 yards, the most for a Golden Eagle back since Ito Smith’s 1,400 plus in 2017.

Gore did so at a clip of almost six yards per carry with three total touchdowns.

Now in its 85th year, the Maxwell Award goes to the most outstanding player in college football.
