Football: Sopoaga named to Outland list

The Hawaii defensive tackle is one of 30 named to the watch list for the Outland trophy.

Isaac Sopoaga's name has been added to another watch list.

This time it's the 2003 Outland Trophy list.

The University of Hawaii defensive tackle is one of 30 offensive and defensive lineman on the list complied by the Football Writers Association of America. The award honors the top interior offensive or defense lineman in the country.

The winner is announced December 11th on ESPN.

Sopoaga is one of two WAC players selected. Joining him on the list from the WAC is Fresno State offensive tackle Logan Mankins.

Last season, the 6-foot-2, 310 pound Sapoaga was a second-team All-WAC selection.

Sopoaga is already on the Bronko Nagurski Trophy watch list which is given to the nation's top defense player.
