Barclay among three West Virginia players named as contenders for 2011 college lineman of the year

Pitt senior defensive end Brandon Lindsey and West Virginia offensive tackle Don Barclay are among four local players named to the Rotary Lombardi Award watch list, it was announced today by the award’s committee.

Barclay (Seneca Valley High School) and Lindsey (Aliquippa High School) join a list of 125 of the top offensive or defensive linemen in the nation.

West Virginia defensive end Bruce Irvin and defensive tackle Julian Miller were also named to the Lombardi watch list. The candidates solidified a place on the official watch list by earning All-America status or all-conference recognition in 2010, or the projection to be awarded with such honors this season.

Last year, Lindsey was named to the All-Big East Second Team after leading the league in tackles for loss with 1.38 per game. Nationally, Lindsey ranked 16th in sacks (0.77 sacks/game) and 16th in tackles for loss. On the year, Lindsey totaled 51 tackles, 17.5 tackles for loss, 10 sacks and three forced fumbles.

Barclay and Irvin, who was second in the nation with 14 sacks, also earned second team All-Big East honors in 2010

Miller tied for the WVU team lead with 14 tackles for loss last year.

This is the 42nd year that the Rotary Lombardi Award has named the nation’s college lineman of the year.

Eligibility for the Rotary Lombardi Award is limited to down linemen, end-to-end, either on offense of defense, who set up no farther than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball, and linebackers who set up no father than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage.
