The Rimington Trophy watch list was released today, but I wanted to catch you up on two more that were released this week, the Jim Thorpe Award and the Rotary Lombardi Award.
Eligibility for the Rotary Lombardi Award is limited to down linemen, end-to-end, either on offense or defense, who set up no farther than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball, and linebackers who set up no father than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage. The Thorpe Award is given to the nation's top defensive back.
Here are your ACC reps for both:
JIM THORPE AWARD
Ray-Ray Armstrong, Miami
Donnie Fletcher, Boston College
Jayron Hosley, Virginia Tech
Chase Minnifield, Virginia
Greg Reid, Florida State
Xavier Rhodes, Florida State
