Oregon State sophomore defensive end Scott Crichton was among four players added to the 18th annual Chuck Bednarik Award Watch List as announced by the Maxwell Football Club Wednesday. The award annually recognizes the most outstanding defensive player in college football.

Scott Crichton already has eight sacks during the first half of 2012, surpassing his production last year (six sacks). His 14 career sacks already ranks tied for ninth in the Oregon State record books.

Semifinalists for the Bednarik Award will be announced on October 29th and three finalists will be announced November 19th. The winner of the Bednarik Award will be announced on December 6th.

Crichton, a native of Tacoma, Wash., has been a force at defensive end since earning a starting job at defensive end as a redshirt freshman in 2011. He set the OSU single season record for forced fumbles his first season.

Oregon State heads on the road Saturday, Oct. 27 to face the Washington Huskies at CenturyLink Field in Seattle at 7:15 p.m. on Pac-12 Networks.
