Tis the season for college football award watch lists. The first to feature a Washington Huskies player is the Rimington Award watch list, which includes UW center Mike Criste. The Rimington is awarded each season to the best center in the country.
And UW defensive linemen Hau'oli Kikaha and Danny Shelton each appear on the Lott IMPACT Trophy watch list. The Lott trophy is awarded each year to an "IMPACT" defensive player, and proclaims to give "equal weight to personal character as well as athletic performance from a defensive college player."
