WEST LONG BRANCH, N.J.- Monmouth fifth-year senior tight end Tyler George (Berkeley Heights, N.J./Governor Livingston) and rising sophomore Julian Hayes (Middletown, Conn./Xavier/The Hun School) have been named to the College Football Performance Awards (CFPA) watch lists for their respective positions.

George was named to the tight end watch list coming off back to back 36 reception seasons. He has started 33 consecutive games for the Hawks, with 868 receiving yards which is 10th all-time. The 6'-5", 245 lbs George was one of two Monmouth players to make a reception in every contest last season. George led the Hawks in catches and reception yardage as a redshirt sophomore in 2010.  

Earlier this month Hayes was named to the running back watch list.  The freshman is coming off a stellar campaign in which he was named as a Jerry Rice Award finalist, while amassing 14 touchdowns and 805 yards. A College Sports Journal All-Freshman selection, Hayes was named the starter in week four and finished with a pair of 100-yard rushing games. His 14 rushing scores are the fourth most in a single season in school history.
