Ulofoshio On Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List
NEWPORT BEACH, Calif. -- Washington linebacker Edefuan Ulofoshio is among 42 players announced to the 2021 Lott IMPACT Trophy Watch List, the Pacific Club IMPACT Foundation announced on June 15.
Ulofoshio earned All-Pac-12 Second Team and Pro Football Focus All-America Honorable Mention recognition in 2020 after leading the Huskies with 47 stops in four games. He also had one sack, four pass defenses, two fumble recoveries and a forced fumble. He set a career high with 14 tackles against Stanford and eclipsed 10 tackles in three of four games. Pro Football Focus has Ulofoshio rated as their top returning linebacker for 2021.
College defensive players are nominated to the Watch List based on the IMPACT on their teams on and off the field. IMPACT is an acronym for Integrity, Maturity, Performance, Academics, Community and Tenacity. The 42 represents Ronnie Lott's number during his legendary career.
The winner of the Lott Trophy, which will be announced in December, will receive $25,000 for his university's general scholarship fund.
This is the 18th year for the Lott Trophy, which has donated more than $1.6 million to schools and other charities around the country.
