TCU QB Max Duggan is racking up awards for senior season performance

The Horned Frogs' quarterback is a Heisman Award contender, but he's already been named winner of a number of other end-of-season awards.

FORT WORTH, Texas — TCU quarterback Max Duggan has had a heck of a senior season, and he's being showered with awards -- and nominations for awards -- as a result.

Perhaps that's to be expected. Duggan, after all, is at the top of the Big 12 Conference in basically every passing category. 

Here's a breakdown of where he ranks, statistically, among his Big 12 quarterback peers: 

  • Passing yards (3070) – 1st
  • Passing efficiency (171.26) – 1st
  • Passing yards per completion (13.89) – 1st 
  • Passing yards per attempt (9.25) – 1st 
  • Passing TDs (29) – 1st 
  • Comp. % (66.56) – 1st 
  • INTs (3) – 2nd

By any stretch, that's one heck of an impressive season!

That senior season performance has already earned Duggan the following awards and finalist nominations:

  • Big 12 Offensive Player of the Year 
  • 2022 All-Big 12 Football First Team
  • Davey O'Brien Award Finalist (awarded to the nation's top college quarterback)
  • Walter Camp Award (awarded to the collegiate American football player of the year, as decided by a group of NCAA coaches and sports information directors)
  • 2022 Johnny Unitas Golden Arm winner (awarded to the nation's top upperclassman quarterback in college football)
  • Heisman Trophy Award finalist

ESPN currently has him ranked as the second-most likely winner for the Heisman prize -- significantly behind USC quarterback Caleb Williams, but still!
