CHARLOTTE, N.C. -- College Football Performance Awards, the largest awards organization in D-I college football, recently announced its watch list for the 2013 CFPA FCS Wide Receiver Award, and North Dakota wide receiver Greg Hardin earned a spot on the list. The preliminary watch list highlights 34 returning performers, vying for the top wide receiver award in the Football Championship Subdivision.

"Congratulations to CFPA recipient Greg Hardin on earning a spot on the 2013 CFPA Watch List," stated CFPA Executive Director Brad Smith. "Coach Mussman has an exceptional returning receiver at his disposal for North Dakota's second season in the Big Sky Conference."

Hardin earned the CFPA Elite Wide Receiver Award in 2012 after setting career highs with 65 catches for 1,145 yards. His single-season yardage total was the second most by a UND receiver in program history and he tied the school record with 14 touchdown receptions.

Hardin also earned the CFPA National Performer of the Week Award after a 333-yard, three touchdown receiving performance against Montana on October 20, 2012. In that same contest, Hardin also returned three kickoffs for 87 yards.

All CFPA recipients are selected exclusively based upon objective scientific rankings of the extent to which individual players increase the overall effectiveness of their teams. All players are eligible for awards at their respective positions; players are not preemptively eliminated from consideration.

Currently, there are 111 CFPA recipients listed on official 2013 NFL rosters. More than 130 CFPA recipients have signed professional contracts, and twenty-one have been first-round NFL Draft selections. Current CFPA winners performing as NFL wide receivers include: Dez Bryant, Tavon Austin, Golden Tate, Justin Blackmon, Kendall Wright, Leonard Hankerson, Ryan Broyles, Damian Williams, Chris Summers, Joe Adams, Danario Alexander, Eric Page, Brian Quick, Aaron Mellette, Brandon Kaufman, Reggie Dunn, and Da'Rick Rogers.

Last season, Texas A&M quarterback Johnny Manziel earned the 2012 CFPA National Performer of the Year Trophy, while Harvard quarterback Colton Chapple earned the 2012 CFPA FCS National Performer of the Year Trophy. Multiple award presentations were broadcast live nationally on ESPN, CBS, Fox Sports, Big Ten Network, Pac 12 Network, as well as internationally on BYUtv.

The full list of 2013 recipients, including the 2013 CFPA FCS Awards, will be announced on January 8, 2014.
