The Walter Camp Award released its watch list today, bringing to an end two weeks of such announcements. The Walter Camp is included 50 "players to watch" for its 2012 Player of the Year award.

Pittsburgh Panthers running back Ray Graham was the lone Big East Conference player recognized on the Walter Camp list.

Walter Camp, commonly known as the "Father of American football," was a former player and coach for the Yale University football team. He is credited with developing play from scrimmage, set plays and the restriction of play to 11 men per side. The Walter Camp Football Foundation is based in Yale's home city, New Haven, Conn.

Graham was also named to the 2012 Maxwell Award watch list for best overall collegiate player and Doak Walker Award watch list for the nation's best college running back.

Last year's Walter Camp trophy was awarded to Stanford quarterback Andrew Luck.
