— Duke University redshirt senior quarterback Anthony Boone was named to the preseason watch list for the Davey O’Brien Award as one of the nation’s top quarterbacks entering the 2014 season, the Davey O’Brien Hall of Fame announced Wednesday.

Boone, a 6-foot, 225-pound native of Weddington, N.C., completed 206-of-322 (.640) passes for 2,260 yards, 13 touchdowns and 13 interceptions in his first season as Duke’s starter in 2013. He rushed for an additional five touchdowns and 214 yards on 66 carries.

A watch list selection for the Maxwell Award and a preseason All-ACC pick by Lindy’s Sports and Phil Steele, Boone has played in 33 games with 12 starts and is 10-2 in his career as Duke’s starting quarterback. His only losses came at the hands of No. 1 Florida State in the Dr Pepper ACC Championship game and to No. 21 Texas A&M in the Chick-fil-A Bowl.

Boone threw multiple touchdowns in five games in 2013, including a career-best 427-yard performance against Texas A&M in which he accounted for three passing touchdowns and one rushing score.

The Davey O’Brien National Quarterback Award is presented annually to the nation’s best college quarterback and is the oldest and most prestigious national quarterback award. The award honors candidates who exemplify Davey O’Brien’s enduring character while exhibiting teamwork, sportsmanship and leadership in both academics and athletics.

The award is overseen by the Davey O’Brien Foundation, which is headquartered in Fort Worth, Texas, and has given away more than $890,000 in scholarships and university grants to help high school and college athletes transform leadership on the field into leadership in life.
