He's already on the watch list for the Bednarik and Nagurski Awards and now Skai Moore is on the watch list for the Butkus Award which is named after the former Chicago Bear linebacker.

The senior linebacker, who missed all of 2016 as he recovered from a neck injury, has a chance to become the first Gamecock to lead the team in tackles for four seasons.

He was named second team Preseason All-SEC following last week's SEC Media Days which follows his second team selection in 2015.

Moore also owns 11 career interceptions, tying for third on the all-time list and just three shy of Bo Davies’ school record of 14.
