Toledo senior center Zac Kerin (Delaware, OH) has been named to the official watch list for the Rotary Lombardi Award. The Rotary Lombardi Award is presented annually to the nation's most outstanding lineman or linebacker. It is the third national award to add him to its official watch list.
Kerin is the leader of UT's veteran offensive line and has earned All-MAC honors the past two seasons. He also was named to the Academic All-MAC team in 2012. He is also on the official watch list for the Rimington Trophy (nation's top center) and Outland Trophy (down lineman).
The 44th Rotary Lombardi Award will be held on December 11, 2013 at the Wortham Center in Houston, TX. Eligibility for the 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, or linebackers who set up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage.
