Myles Garrett named Lombardi Award Semifinalist
The postseason award honors will be here soon, so don't be surprised when you start to see Myles Garrett's name appear on nearly every award he's eligible to receive.
What would an award given to the nation's top lineman be without having Garrett's name on it be? Not worth giving honestly and the Rotary Lombardi Award is anything but, as the Aggies star defensive end wisely made the list of the 12 semifinalists.
Via the Lombardi semifinalists press release:
Texas A & M sophomore DE, Myles Garrett, is one of the nation's most disruptive defensive players. Garrett leads the SEC with 10.5 QB sacks, 15.5 tackles for loss (tie) and five forced fumbles, and he ranks in the top three nationally in all three of those statistical categories. He also has 44 tackles, seven QB hurries, a blocked punt and an interception on his 2015 resume. In addition to being a Rotary Lombardi Award semifinalist, Garrett was named a semifinalist for the Bednarik Award (defensive player of the year) and a quarter-finalist for the Lott IMPACT Trophy. He is on the watch lists for the Hendricks Award (top DE) and the Bronko Nagurski Trophy (outstanding defender).
