A lot of news off the field this week for the ASU football team, including a few Sun Devils earning high preseason honors. Sophomore D.J. Foster was one of 44 players to be named to the Hornung Award Watch List. The Hornung Award is given out to the most versatile player in college football.

Reigning Pac-12 Player of the Year Will Sutton was named the sixth best player in college football by USA Today Sports. Despite being No. 6, there were three Pac-12 players ahead of him, Marcus Mariota (5) and Marqise Lee (3).

Good news for the future of ASU football, as last week the Sun Devils got a commitment from a 14-year-old who has played as many high school football games as me (that would be zero).

Loren Mondy will graduate high school in 2017, meaning by the time he gets on campus, I will be broke, out of work and living back with my parents.
