Boston College's Luke Kuechly was named one of eight semifinalists for the 2011 Lott Trophy today. Kuechly joins Don'ta Hightower and Manti Te'o as the only players in the country to be named a Lott Trophy, Rotary LombardiChuck Bednarik Award and Butkus Award semifinalist.

Named after Hall of Famer Ronnie Lott, the Lott Trophy is awarded to college football's Defensive IMPACT Player of the Year. Now in its eighth year, the Lott Trophy is the first college football award to equally recognize athletic performance and the personal character attributes of the player.

The other seven semifinalists are: LB Emmanuel Acho (Texas), CB Brodrick Brown (Oklahoma State), LB Lavonte David (Nebraska), LB Don'ta Hightower (Alabama), Chase Minnifield (Virginia), DL John Simon (Ohio State) and LB Manti Te'o (Notre Dame).

Kuechly leads the Eagles defense in total tackles (150), solo stops (80), assisted tackles (70), tackles per game (16.67), tackles for loss (8.5) and even interceptions (2). Luke also leads the nation in total tackles, solo stops and tackles per game ... and has recorded 10 or more tackles in 30 consecutive games, the longest current streak in the country.

The winner will be announced on December 11.

Go Eagles!
