Hamilcar Rashed Jr. Named To Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List
CORVALLIS, Ore. – Oregon State senior linebacker Hamilcar Rashed Jr. has been named to watch list for the 2020 Lott IMPACT Trophy Award, it was announced on Thursday. He is one of 42 student-athletes on the initial watch list.
Now in its 17th year, the Lott IMPACT Trophy goes to the college football defensive player who has the biggest IMPACT on his team both on and off the field. IMPACT is an acronym for integrity, maturity, performance, academics, community and tenacity.
Rashed Jr. led the nation with 22.5 tackles for loss in 2019 and placed tied for third with 14 sacks. Both totals also set Oregon State single-season records. He posted at least one TFL in each of his first 10 games, only one of three players nationally to accomplish that feat. A Phoenix native, he has already graduated with a degree in public health.
Rashed Jr. is one of 16 linebackers nationally on the watch list. He is also one of eight players from the Pac-12 Conference on it.
The honor was named in honor of Ronnie Lott – a two-time All-American for USC and College Football Hall of Fame inductee. Ronnie Lott went on to win four Super Bowl rings with the San Francisco 49ers, ten trips to the Pro Bowl and a spot in the Pro Football Hall of Fame. Always known as a fierce competitor, he was a leader who had IMPACT both on and off the field.
