Garner Named to Mayo Clinic Comeback Player of the Year Watch List

DURHAM, N.C. – Redshirt sophomore Jarett Garner was named to the watch list for the 2020 Mayo Clinic Comeback Player of the Year Award.

In its third year of existence, the award is given to three honorees each season after overcoming injury or illness and coming back to collegiate football. A panel of writers and sports information directors from the College Sports Information Directors of America (CoSIDA), AP and Touchdown Illustrated selected the watch list. This season's watch list included 53 players from 44 schools.

After being on the field for just 11 spans through three games in 2019, Garner suffered a torn anterior cruciate ligament that sidelined him for the remainder of the season.
