TALLAHASSEE, Fla. - The National College Football Awards Association released two more watch lists for postseason accolades this morning, and a pair of Seminoles made the cut.

Junior Nick O'Leary is one of 37 athletes on the Mackey Award watch list, given annually to the nation's top tight end. In his sophomore year, O'Leary started 11 games and caught 21 passes for 252 yards and three touchdowns.

Senior Bryan Stork made the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, awarded to the top center in the country. Stork has bounced around the FSU offensive line in his career, playing tackle, guard, and center, but he seemed to find a permanent home in the middle last year, starting 13 games at center.

Tomorrow, the NCFAA will reveal the preseason watch lists for the Lou Groza Award (best kicker) and the Ray Guy Award (best punter).
