Alabama's Tua Tagovailoa wins Walter Camp Award

Murray took home the Davey O'Brien Award, which goes to the best quarterback.

Alabama sophomore quarterback Tua Tagovailoa, one of three finalists for Saturday's Heisman Award, won the Walter Camp Player of the Year Award and the Maxwell Award for best all-around player during today's ESPN College Football Awards Show in Atlanta. He joins Henry (2015) and McCarron (2013) as the only Crimson Tide players to win the Maxwell Award.

The O'Brien Award was initially given to the top player in the Southwest before going to a quarterback-only honor in 1981. Earlier in the day, Murray was also announced as the AP Player of the Year.

He's on pace to best Baker Mayfield's all-time single-season passing efficiency mark, as well has his record yards per attempt benchmark. He has also rushed for 892 yards and another 11 scores. The past four Maxwell winners and past five Walter Camp winners have all gone on to win the Heisman. McCarron was the last Maxwell Award victor to not win the Heisman.

He beat out Alabama quarterback Tua Tagovailoa and Ohio State quarterback Dwayne Haskins for the Associated Press' honor, but he will still face off against them in the race for the Heisman Trophy. "Maybe the most productive for the time that he played..."
