Wiley Gets Second Watch List Nomination

West Virginia Senior Linebacker Grant Wiley has been named to his second preseason watch list.

After garnering a nomination to the Bronko Nagurski Award Watch List last month, Wiley has been named to the Rotary Lombardi Award.

Eligibility for the Rotary Lombardi Award is limited to down linemen and those defensive players who line up within five yards of the football.

For the second consecutive year, the Rotary Lombardi Award Dinner will be held on the field of Reliant Stadium in Houston. This year's gala event will be held on Wednesday, December 10.

Wiley is one of 39 players to be nominated for the award. The list will be narrowed to 12 semifinalists before the winner is selected.
