Lombardi Award

Lombardi Award

The Rotary Lombardi Award is awarded annually to the best college football lineman or linebacker. The Rotary Lombardi Award program was approved by the Rotary Club in Houston in 1970 shortly after the death of Vince Lombardi. The committee outlined the criteria for eligibility for the award, which remains in place to this day. A player should be a down lineman on either side of the ball or a linebacker who lines up no farther than five yards deep from the ball. The main part of the trophy is a block of Granite giving homage to Lombardi's college days as an offensive lineman, when his offensive line was referred to as the, "7 Blocks of Granite."

This award is not to be confused with the Vince Lombardi Trophy which is given to the National Football League Super Bowl winner.
