The 2012 Rotary Lombardi Award Watch List was announced on Monday and features a few local players.

The 2012 Rotary Lombardi Award Watch List features a mix of Texas A&M and University of Houston players, as the club out of Houston announced on Monday. The award is given to the nation's top college lineman or linebacker each year. Texas A&M has three players on the list - offensive tackles Luke Joeckel and Jake Matthews of Matthews family fame, as well as Sean Porter who was also announced to the Butkus Award watch list on Monday as well.
