Texas Tech’s Le’Raven Clark Named to Lombardi Award Watch List
Texas Tech’s Le’Raven Clark continues to earn off-season accolades as he has been named to another award watch list. The junior offensive tackle was named earlier last week to the Outland Trophy Watch, and now is just one of 123 players recognized for the Lombardi Award, which is presented annually to the top lineman or linebacker in the country.
Eligibility for the Lombardi Award is limited to down lineman, end-to-end, either on offense or defense, who set up no farther than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball, or linebackers who set up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage. Entering his third season as a start on the offensive line for Tech, Clark looks to be the leader up front as the Red Raiders offense looks to be even more potent then it was last season. This marks the second consecutive year that Clark was named to the Lombardi Award watch list.
Each candidate earned a place on the watch list by earning All-American honors, being named to their respective all-conference teams or receiving 2014 preseason honors. The 45th annual Lombardi Award will be presented December 10th at the Bayou Music Center in Houston, Texas.
