DALLAS, Texas - Washington State redshirt sophomore right tackle Abraham Lucas was named to the 2019 Outland Trophy Watch List, announced Tuesday by the Football Writers Association of America.
Lucas is one of 12 from the Pac-12 to be named to the award watch list given to the top interior linemen in college football. Former Cougar and Wenatchee native left guard Cody O’Connell earned the same honor prior to the 2017 season.
As a redshirt freshman last season, Lucas started all 13 games at right tackle and earned Freshman All-America honors from the USA Today and The Athletic, along with an All-Pac-12 second-team selection. Lucas was rated the No. 14 offensive tackle in the country and second best pass blocking tackle in 2018 by ProFootballFocus.com.
Senior center Frederick Mauigoa was also named to the Rimington Trophy Watch List last week, an award given to the season’s most outstanding center in Division I college football.
