NEW ORLEANS - The Bowerman Men's Watch Committee in conjunction with the U.S. Track & Field and Cross Country Coaches Association (USTFCCCA) gave their first look at the 2011 male contenders for The Bowerman - collegiate track & field's biggest and best award. With all three finalists from the 2010 season graduating, a fresh new crop will be among those vying for the award over the several months.

The watch list includes three out-right sophomores and 2009 finalist German Fernandez. Washington State's Jeshua Anderson returns to the watch list for a record ninth time (eight lists in 2010). Anderson, along with 2010 finalists Ashton Eaton and Ryan Whiting, was on the award's watch lists for each of the updates last year.
