Boston College's Luke Kuechly Named Lott Impact Trophy Semifinalist

Luke Kuechly has been one of the very few bright spots for the Boston College Eagles football team this season, leading the nation in tackles, both total (150) and solo (80). As a result, Kuechly has been named one of eight semifinalists for the Lott IMPACT Trophy honoring the Defensive IMPACT Player Of The Year.

Kuechly is certainly a deserving candidate, and he should win the award without question. But for now, Kuechly's "competition" for the award are Emmanuel Acho of Texas, Lavonte David of Nebraska, Dont'a Hightower of Alabama, Manti Te'o of Notre Dame, Brodrick Brown of Oklahoma State, Chase Minnifield of Virginia and John Simon of Ohio State.

The Lott Trophy is named after Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott and is the first college football award that honors athletic performance as well as a player's personal attributes and character. The award is in its eighth season.
