Kentucky senior Bud Dupree is becoming a regular on defensive player of the year watch lists, with his name popping up for the second time this week on one.
This time it’s the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List for college football’s defensive player of the year.
He was put on the Chuck Bednarik Award Preseason Watch List earlier this week. Dupree is one of 81 defensive players on the Nagurski list and one of 23 defensive ends.
Dupree is the Cats’ returning leading tackler with 61, including 9.5 for loss. The senior also had seven sacks.
The five finalists for the award will be named Nov. 20 with the trophy presentation on Dec. 8 in Charlotte.
