Ole Miss junior wide receiver A.J. Brown was dubbed as a member of the watch list for the 82nd annual Maxwell Award that is given by the Maxwell Football Club on Monday.

 
The Maxwell Award, named in honor of Robert W. “Tiny” Maxwell, has been given to America’s College Player of the Year since 1937. The Maxwell Football Club, founded in 1935, is based in Philadelphia, Pennsylvania, and is the oldest football club in the United States.
Brown ended the 2017 season as the Ole Miss single-season record-holder in receiving yards (1,252) and tied for the top spot in receiving touchdowns (11). He was tops in the SEC and ranked sixth nationally in receiving yards per game (104.3) during his sophomore campaign in 2017.
Last season, the Starkville native tallied six 100-yard receiving games that are tied for best in a single season, which equals Laquon Treadwell’s mark in 2015. The 2017 Conerly Trophy winner finished third on the single-season record charts in receptions (75).
 
Former Rebel Eli Manning earned the Maxwell Award trophy following his All-America 2003 senior season, becoming the first Ole Miss player to receive the award.
The Maxwell Award semifinalist will be announced on Oct. 29, 2018, while the three finalists for the award will be unveiled Nov. 19, 2018. The winner of the 2018 Maxwell Award will be announced as part of the Home Depot College Football Awards Show held on Dec. 6, 2018.
The Rebels will open the 2018 season vs. Texas Tech in the AdvoCare Texas Kickoff, in Houston, on Sept. 1. Kick is slated for 11 a.m. will be televised on ESPN.
