Watch list season came to an end Friday with the release for the Walter Camp Award.

Fifty players were listed as contenders for the postseason award given to the player of the year. Notre Dame quarterback Malik Zaire and wide receiver Will Fuller made the list. Oregon quarterback Marcus Mariota won the award last season.

Zaire was also on the Maxwell Award watch list, another recognition for the player of the year. Fuller also made the watch list for Biletnikoff Award, given to the nation's top receiver.

Fourteen different Irish players were named on the various watch lists from the National College Football Awards Association. The lists for each award can be found here.
