TUSCALOOSA -- Alabama quarterback AJ McCarron may finally be getting the national recognition fans feel he deserves.
McCarron was named one of 16 semifinalists for the Maxwell Award, which goes to the collegiate player of the year. McCarron was also a semifinalist last season when Notre Dame linebacker Manti Te'o won the award.
