One of the more interesting postseason college football awards is SB Nation’s own Piesman Trophy, which aims to “honor the best play in which a lineman throws, catches, or runs with the ball, because those are things linemen don't usually do.”

The award is in its second season, and this time around Georgia Southern Eagles center Andy Kwon is on the watch list.

Kwon, a 6-2, 300-pound senior, is a preseason first team all-Sun Belt selection and Rimington Trophy nominee. But he’s got other talents, such as leading his team in the Running Man Challenge.

You can see the full watch list here. Conference peers on the list include App State’s Elias McMurry and Arkansas State’s Waylong Roberson. Nick Perrotta of Kennesaw State is also up for the Piesman.
