MISSOULA -- Montana’s Jordan Johnson has been named to the College Football Performance Awards watch list for quarterbacks.

Johnson passed for 3,387 yards with 32 touchdowns and five interceptions as the Grizzlies went 10-3 last season. He was ranked second in the Big Sky Conference and ninth in the FCS in passing efficiency at 154.7.

He was ranked fourth in the league and 21st in the nation in total offense, averaging 271.9 yards a game.

Johnson was ranked in the top 20 in the Football Championship Subdivision in several other categories, including fourth in yards per completion (15.4), sixth in touchdowns (32), 11th in passing yards (3,387) and 15th in points responsible for (192).

Last season Johnson was a third team All-Big Sky selection. He was chosen the Grizzlies’ MVP, sharing the honor with senior linebacker Brock Coyle.

Johnson, a senior, is the third Montana player to earn a spot on the 2014 CFPA watch list. Senior defensive end Zack Wagenmann was named to the list for defensive linemen, and senior free safety Matt Hermanson was named for defensive backs.
