Philadelphia, PA (SportsNetwork.com) - The gaudy statistics of a Walter Payton Award candidate always jump right out at admirers, but the number that is most important on campus is the victory total. So what the teams of Idaho State quarterback Justin Arias and running backs Chase Edmonds of Fordham, Connor Kacsor of Dayton and DyShawn Mobley of Eastern Kentucky have accomplished this season plays right into the four players being named to the 2014 Payton Award Watch List on Tuesday. The 28th annual Payton Award, presented by The Sports Network, will be bestowed on the outstanding player in the FCS on Dec. 15 at the national awards banquet. The four new additions: Justin Arias, QB, Idaho State, Sr., 6-0, 213, Agoura Hills, California Behind Arias spectacular play, Idaho State has won four straight games to improve to 6-3 and guarantee itself at least a .500 season for the first time since 2003.

Kacsor rushed for 301 yards against Georgetown in their season opener and has gone over 200 yards in two other victories. Overall, Kacsor ranks No. 3 in the FCS with 145.6 rushing yards per game, gaining 1,165 yards and 14 touchdowns in the eight games.
