Six LSU Tigers on Lombardi award watch list
BATON ROUGE – Six LSU football players made the cut for the Rotary Lombardi Award Preliminary Watch List Thursday.
According to LSU Athletics, Kendell Beckwith, Leonard Fournette, Davon Godchaux, Arden Key, Lewis Neal and Ethan Pocic made the final list. Those players were among 158 candidates to make the initial list for the award.
The award is given to the player who demonstrates outstanding performance and skill in offense or defensive positions and exemplify the discipline, virtue and wisdom that defined Vincent Lombardi’s exceptional brand.
The players were chosen by earning All-American honors, being named to their respective all-conference teams, or by receiving the 2016 pre-season honors.
An internal selection committee will nominate additional players who meet skill and leadership standards. The award ceremony date will be announced later in the football season.
