Another day, another watchlist for Pitt's Romeus and Pinkston. Both seniors had been nominated for the Lombardi Award
and now each adds another prestigious watchlist at their position.
For Romeus, it's the Bronko Nagurski Trophy
, which is awarded by the Football Writers Association of America for the nation's best defensive player. Past winners include Warren Sapp, Champ Bailey and Charles Woodson.
Pinkston was also named to watchlist of a FWAA award - the Outland Trophy
, which goes to the nation's premiere tackle or guard. Pinkston and UConn Guard Zach Hurd are the only Big East representatives on the list. (EDIT: Forgot Art Forst of Rutgers.)
72 days until kickoff.
