It only would have been “news” if Brian Lewerke was NOT named to the Maxwell Award’s preseason list.

Much of America’s college football fans think his name is Brian LaWurk right now.

But as the season rolls on and as Lewerke piles up the numbers and the wins, the folks out there will come to see this guy as a true dual threat who is destined for greatness on the field this season, destined for greatness off the field as someone that Spartans can be proud of, and destined for greatness in the NFL down the road, perhaps after raising some of college football’s most iconic trophies.

And LJ Scott’s name is on the preseason list for the Maxwell Award, too.

When LJ Scott put the ball on the ground in some key situations over the last couple of years, it would have been hard to see him as a guy who’d work his way back to being recognized as one of the nation’s best college football players.

LJ Scott might still need some lessons on parking regulations around East Lansing but he sure has demonstrated that he’s ready to rock in 2018.

With the announcement that, along with Khari Willis, Lewerke and LJ will represent the Spartans at next week’s Big Ten Media Days, it’s clear that these guys are seen as leaders on and off the field.

Lewerke and LJ appear to have done the work this offseason to earn the respect of their coaches and teammates.

They’ve earned the respect of the folks at the Maxwell Award.

All that’s left now is to earn the respect of every opposing defense on the schedule in 2018 by punishing them with yards, touchdowns, and victories.

Here’s a look at the entire list of preseason candidates for the Maxwell Award –
