Vanderbilt cornerback Myron Lewis has been selected to the 2009 Bronko Nagurski Watch List.

Myron Lewis, already an All-American candidate for Vanderbilt, had 76 tackles, 5 sacks, 7 tackles for losses and 5 interceptions in 2008. Lewis was recently named to the preseason All-American team.

The Bronko Nagurski Trophy is awarded annually to the nation's best defensive player by the FWAA and the Charlotte Touchdown Club. The trophy has been presented since 1993 and is awarded in memory of the legendary Nagurski, an All-America lineman at Minnesota in 1927-29 and a star for professional football's Chicago Bears in the 1930s.

The Bronko Nagurski Watch List is fluid. Players may be added or removed during the season. After the first four games of the season, the FWAA will revise the list and at that time school sports information directors may submit names for players not on the list to the FWAA and their conference's FWAA All-America Committee representative.
