CHARLESTON, SC - The Citadel junior defensive back Dee Delaney is included on the STATS Defensive Player of the Year Watch List released Friday.
The watch list includes 22 athletes from across the country, only four defensive backs and just two from the Southern Conference. Delaney has already been selected as a Preseason All-American by STATS and Athlon Sports and is a first-team Preseason All-Southern Conference selection by the conference's coaches.
In 2015, Delaney was named a Walter Camp All-American, first-team STATS All-American and a second-team All-American by the Associated Press and College Sports Madness. The Beaufort, South Carolina, native also earned the College Football Performance Awards Elite Defensive Back Award and was a first-team All-Southern Conference selection.
