Kennard named Ronnie Lott Award semifinalist

USC defensive lineman Devon Kennard discusses being named a semifinalist for the Ronnie Lott Impact Award.

They are both Trojans, they both wear No. 42 and now USC linebacker Devon Kennard is a semifinalist for the Impact award named after Ronnie Lott.

Kennard and Lott have developped a relationship via social media the past few weeks, as Kennard has continued to be a source of strength for the Trojans this season, leading the team with eight sacks.

After being sidelined last year with an injury, Kennard says he is thankful for every day he gets to come out to the Coliseum and play for USC and is "just hoping to win" Lott's award now.
