LOGAN, UT – Utah State Aggie graduate quarterback Logan Bonner has been named to the 2022 Maxwell Award watch list ahead of the 2022 season.

Utah State announced the honor on Monday, July 18.

The Maxwell Award is presented annually by the Maxwell Football Club to America’s College Player of the Year. Established in 1937, the Maxwell Award is named in honor of Robert W. β€œTiny” Maxwell for his extensive contributions to the game of football as a player, sportswriter and official.Β 85 players have been named to the list.

Bonner transferred to Utah State from Arkansas State prior to the 2021 season.

The 6’1, 230 pound quarterback put together one of the best statistical seasons for an Aggie signal-caller in program history. He set five single-season school records including passing yards (3,682), touchdown passes (36), four touchdown passes in three consecutive games, four touchdown passes in six games and 2.57 touchdown passes per game.

His 36 passing touchdowns is the third most in Mountain West history.
