USM’s Frank Gore Jr. named to Doak Walker Award Watch List

This week in Hattiesburg, USM’s Frank Gore Jr. is a popular watch list selection, this time courtesy of the Doak Walker Award, going to the nation’s top running back.

Gore seems poised for a breakout second season, coming off the best year for a Southern Miss running back since 2017 with 708 yards on 121 careers and three total touchdowns.

Head Coach Will Hall says he’s also put on eight pounds of lean muscle mass without losing a step.
