Three Longhorns considered for award

Three Longhorns are among a list of players who have been included in the preliminary Watch List for the 36th Rotary Lombardi Award, which was released today in Houston. Offensive tackles Justin Blalock and Jonathan Scott, along with defensive tackle Rodrique Wright, were named to the list of candidates for the award, which will be presented on December 7 at the Hilton Americas Hotel in Houston. Longhorn All-American linebacker Derrick Johnson was one of four finalists for last year's Lombardi Award.

Eligibility for the Rotary Lombardi Award is limited to down linemen and those defensive players who line up within five yards of the football. While the watch lists highlight players who have already received national recognition, any Division I player who meets the position requirements is eligible for consideration from the Rotary Lombardi Selection Committee, which is comprised of over 500 members, including all past finalists, all Division I head coaches and a panel of sportswriters and broadcasters. The Rotary Lombardi Watch List, intended as a reference tool for the Selection Committee, will be periodically updated and revised through the conclusion of the voting to determine the 12 Semifinalists for 2005.
