Tre Mason can put another preseason feather in his cap.

Auburn's Tre Mason was named to the Doak Walker watch list on Thursday, which is given to the nation's top running back every year.

Auburn’s Tre Mason was named to the Doak Walker watch list on Thursday, which is given to the nation’s top running back every year.

The junior was selected to the Doak Walker Award preseason watch list on Thursday, which is given annually to the nation’s top running back. The announcement came on the same day he was named to the All-SEC second-team by voters at SEC Media Days.

Mason ran for a team-high 1,002 yards and eight touchdowns last season. He started six games, running for a career-best 181 yards and two touchdowns against Alabama A&M. One of those touchdowns went 86 yards, making it the fourth-longest rushing play in school history and the seventh-longest play from scrimmage. Mason finished last season leading the Tigers in total offense, becoming the first non-quarterback to pull off the feat since fellow running back Bo Jackson in 1985.

Mason was listed as a Co-No. 1 on the running back depth chart coming out of the spring, as Auburn coach Gus Malzahn placed him alongside Cameron Artis-Payne and Corey Grant.
