Two more Iowa football players were named to watch lists for nationwide awards on Tuesday: Junior tight end C.J. Fiedorowicz is on the John Mackey Award watch list, and senior center James Ferentz appears on the Rimington Trophy watch list.

Fiedorowicz is one of 33 tight ends to earn the same preseason honor. The Johnsburg, Ill., native tallied 16 catches for 167 yards in 2011, including three touchdowns. The then-sophomore played in all 13 games on the season and started in five. Fiedorowicz was named to the College Football Performance Awards watch list for the tight-end trophy on July 9.

Ferentz has been named to the Rimington watch list two-consecutive years. The senior also earned honorable-mention Big Ten honors last season. The center has started 26-straight games.

Fiedorowicz and Ferentz join five other teammates with preseason honors. Quarterback James Vandenberg appears on the College Football Performance Awards watch list for the quarterback trophy and the Maxwell Award watch list. Defensive back Micah Hyde and linebacker James Morris were named to the watch list for the Bednarik Award. Wide receiver Keenan Davis was named to the College Football Performance Awards watch list for the wide-receiver trophy. Kicker Mike Meyer was also named to the College Football Performance Awards watch list for the special teams and place-kicker trophies on June 26.
