Eight from SEC on Lott watch list
By Chris Low
The preseason watch lists for 2014 are about to start rolling in, and already we have 42 names on the Lott IMPACT Trophy watch list, which is awarded annually to the defensive player who has the biggest impact on his team.
IMPACT stands for Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity.
Eight of the 42 players are from the SEC:
- Landon Collins, S, Alabama
- Alvin "Bud" Dupree, DE, Kentucky
- Vernon Hargreaves III, CB, Florida
- Jalen Mills, CB, LSU
- Jonathon Mincy, CB, Auburn
- A.J. Johnson, LB, Tennessee
- Deterrian Shackelford, LB, Ole Miss
- Ramik Wilson, LB, Georgia
The last SEC player to win the award was LSU defensive tackle Glenn Dorsey in 2007. Georgia’s David Pollack won the inaugural award in 2004.
