Sewell Named to Polynesian Player of the Year Award Watch List

Posted: Updated:

Sophomore linebacker Gabriel Sewell has been named to the watch list for the Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award, the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame announced today.
 
Sewell is one of 48 players from around the nation to earn a spot on the watch list. The Mountain West led all conferences with 15 selections, followed by the Pac-12 which had 14.
 
In his first full season last year with the Wolf Pack, Sewell ranked third on the team with 78 tackles, including 5.5 for loss, forced a fumble and blocked an extra point. He set a career-high with 10 tackles during the team's road contest at San José State in 2016. He also earned preseason recognition from Athlon Sports and College Sports Madness.
 
The award is presented annually to the most outstanding Polynesian college football player that epitomizes great ability and integrity. Five finalists will be unveiled on Nov. 30 and the winner of the 2017 Polynesian College Football Player of the Year Award will be announced on Dec. 14. The presentation of the award will be held at the celebration dinner during the Polynesian Football Hall of Fame Enshrinement Weekend on Jan. 21 in Honolulu, Hawai'i.
 
Nevada opens the 2017 season under first-year head coach Jay Norvell on Saturday, Sept. 2, when it travels to Evanston, Ill. to play at Northwestern with kickoff set for 12:30 p.m. PT. Season tickets are on sale now by calling (775) 348-PACK or visiting NevadaWolfPack.com.
