Ziemba, Pugh named to Lombardi watch list

Auburn offensive linemen Lee Ziemba and Ryan Pugh have been named to the watch list for the Rotary Lombardi Award. The award is limited to down linemen on offense or defense and linebackers.

Ziemba, who is on the watch list for the Outland Trophy, is a consensus first-team All-SEC preseason pick this year. He's started every game since arriving at Auburn in 2007, a streak of 38 starts. If he starts every game this year, he'll break the school record for consecutive starts of 49 held by Will Herring.

Pugh, who was also named to the watch list for the Rimington Trophy, has 31 career starts, including 25 straight at center. he was a second-team All-SEC selection by the Associated Press last year after leading the Tigers with 70 knockdown blocks.

Both players helped Auburn set team single-season records in 2009 for points (433), total offense (5,613yards) and passing touchdowns (25).

Here's a rundown of which Auburn's players on watch lists:
  • Pugh: Rimington, Lombardi, CLASS Award
  • Ziemba: Outland, Lombardi
  • Mario Fannin: Doak Walker
  • Darvin Adams: Biletnikoff
  • Josh Bynes: Butkus, Bednarik
  • Craig Stevens: Butkus, Nagurski
  • Demond Washington: Paul Hornung
  • Wes Byrum: Lou Groza

His hands are inside his shoulders. As long as that's the case, he's not holding.
