Davidson’s Wesley Dugger


CHARLESTON, S.C. – Davidson junior running back Wesley Dugger was named to the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) 2019 preseason watch list for the CFPA FCS National Performer of the Year Trophy, announced by the organization Tuesday.

Dugger was one of three Pioneer Football League players named to the watch list, along with Dayton quarterback Jack Cook and San Diego wide receiver Michael Bandy. In all, 40 FCS student-athletes were selected to the CFPA watch list. 

The Henrico, Va., native is a HERO Sports FCS Preseason All-American, Preseason PFL All-Conference selection and Preseason Phil Steele All-PFL Team member.

Dugger, fresh off his second 1,000-yard season in as many tries, enters 2019 fourth on the all-time rushing list with 2,372 yards, needing 794 yards to eclipse John Leverett (3,165 yards) for the school record. His 6.06 yards per carry in 2018 reset the single-season standard for the Wildcats and he found the end zone 16 times to lead the team.

Davidson opens the season at home on Aug. 31 at 1 p.m. against Georgetown. The ‘Cats recently launched the “Pack Richardson” campaign, led by the generosity of Stephen B.
