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 third year, The Lott Trophy is the first and only college football award to equally recognize athletic performance and the personal character attributes of the player.
"This is an impressive list of candidates," said Lott. "I believe that each of them is most deserving and it will be a difficult task to single out just one of these outstanding student-athletes."
In his fourth season as a starter for the Tigers, Landry currently is second on the LSU squad in tackles with 40. He also has two tackles for losses, one interception and a blocked punt for the nation's No. 1 rated defense.
Sponsored by The Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation, the Lott award is given to a player who exhibits the same characteristics Lott embodied during his distinguished career: Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity.
