UNC Football: Beau Corrales named to Earl Campbell Tyler Rose watch list

UNC football standout Beau Corrales has been named to the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose preseason watch list for the 2020 season.

The Earl Campbell Tyler Rose Award is presented annually to the nation’s top offensive player that has ties to the state of Texas. In order to be eligible for the award, student-athletes must have been born in Texas and/or graduated from a Texas high school. They are also eligible if they played football at a Texas-based junior college or four-year Division I Texas college.

Along with the state requirements that go along with the award, it also aims to recognize the player who exhibits the enduring characteristics that embody Earl Campbell. Some of those characteristics include:

-Integrity
-Performance
-Teamwork
-Sportsmanship
-Drive
-Community
-Tenacity
-Determination (to overcome adversity and injuries)

For the second straight season, the Tar Heels are represented on this preseason watch list.

UNC wide receiver Beau Corrales has been named to the Earl Campbell Tyler Rose preseason watch list. The rising senior is a Georgetown, Texas native, and is expected to play a big role in the Tar Heels’ offense this upcoming season.

As a junior, Corrales had a career-year, appearing in all 13 games (while making 11 starts). He set a career-high in receptions (40), receiving yards (575) and touchdowns (six).

After becoming a reliable target for Sam Howell, it’s expected that Corrales’ numbers will be even better during his final season in Chapel Hill. The Howell-to-Corrales connection could play a major factor in the Tar Heels’ success during the 2020 campaign.

The Tar Heels are just under a week away from their season opener at home against Syracuse.
