App State’s Hodges Named to Lombardi Award Watch List

 

BOONE, N.C. — App State offensive tackle Cooper Hodges has been named to the watch list for the Rotary Lombardi Award that goes to the college football offensive or defensive lineman who, in addition to outstanding performance and ability, best exemplifies the character and discipline of NFL Hall of Fame Head Coach Vince Lombardi.

 

Hodges also has made the watch list for the Outland Trophy, which is awarded to the nation’s best interior lineman on offense or defense.

 

Hodges has received All-Sun Belt recognition after each of the last three seasons, as he’s been App State’s starting right tackle for 39 consecutive games. He graded out at 86 percent and had a team-high 84 knockdown blocks in 2021.

A preseason first-team All-Sun Belt selection by Sun Belt coaches, Athlon, Lindy’s and Phil Steele, Hodges has been part of an App State offensive line that’s been recognized as a semifinalist for the Joe Moore Award in two of his three seasons.
