COLUMBIA - The Missouri Football team announced Friday that defensive end Charles Harris was named to the preseason watch list for the 2016 Bronko Nagurski Award.

The Football Writers' Association of America gives the award to the nation's defensive player of the year. Earlier this week, Harris was named to the watch list for the Chuck Bednarik Defensive Player of the Year.

Harris earned 2nd-Team All-Southeastern Conference honors last season.

While starting all 12 games in his first season as a starter, Harris racked up seven quarterback sacks, 56 total tackles, two forced fumbles and one pass broken up.
