Four CAA Quarterbacks Named To CFPA FCS Performer Watch List

Four quarterbacks from CAA Football were among 40 players honored on the preseason watch list for the 2019 College Football Performance Awards FCS National Performer of the Year trophy.

Making the list were Elon junior Davis Cheek, James Madison senior Ben DiNucci, Maine junior Chris Ferguson and Towson senior Tom Flacco.

Cheek was limited to six games in 2018 due to a season-ending knee injury, but completed 79-of-120 passes for 1,018 yards and four touchdowns. He earned CAA Offensive Rookie of the Year accolades in 2017 after throwing for 2,431 yards and 15 TD’s.

DiNucci connected on 211-of-309 passes for 2,275 yards and 16 touchdowns last season and ranked third nationally in completion percentage (68.3%). The third-team All-CAA selection also rushed for 433 yards and a team-best 9 TD’s.

Ferguson completed 209-of-371 passes for 2,372 yards and 22 touchdowns last season in leading Maine to the semifinals of the FCS playoffs for the first time and a CAA championship. The passing yardage total ranks ninth on the Black Bears’ all-time single-season list.

Flacco received CAA Offensive Player of the Year and All-America honors in 2018 after completing 269-of-439 passes for 3,251 yards and a school-record tying 28 touchdowns. He also rushed for a team-best 742 yards and four scores to rank third in FCS in total offense (332.8 ypg).

The award winner will be announced on January 15, 2020.
