McCoy Named to Lott Watch List

Oklahoma Sooner Football Articles and Notes

Gerald McCoy named to Lott Watch List: Oklahoma's Gerald McCoy has been named to the 2009 Lott Trophy Watch List. The Watch List is made up of 42 of the nation's top defensive players who have had the biggest IMPACT on their teams on and off the field. IMPACT stands for Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity. McCoy is a 6-4, 300-pound junior defensive tackle from Oklahoma City. He was an All-American last season when he had 6.5 sacks and 11 tackles for losses. McCoy is a member of the AFCA Good Works Team, President of the Fellowship of Christian Athletes and one of the Sooner captains. Named after Hall of Famer Lott, The Lott Trophy is awarded to college football's Defensive IMPACT Player of the Year. Now in its sixth year, The Lott Trophy is the only college football award to equally recognize athletic performance and the personal character attributes of the player. Sponsored by The Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation, the award is given to a player who exhibits the same characteristics Lott embodied during his distinguished career: Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity.
