Te'o named Lott semifinalist
By Matt Fortuna
Manti Te'o is one of eight semifinalists for the Lott Award, given to the defensive IMPACT player who has displayed great performance on the field and great character off it.
Te'o leads Notre Dame in tackles (87), tackles for loss (4.5) and sacks (11).
He joins Alabama's Dont'a Hightower and Boston College's Luke Kuechly as the only players to be named semifinalists for the Lott, Lombardi and Butkus awards.
IMPACT stands for Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity.
