Martin IfediMartin Ifedi, who led the University of Memphis with 11 tackles for lost yardage and 7.5 quarterback sacks last season, has been named to the preliminary watch list for the 2013 Rotary Lombardi Award.


Eligibility for the award is limited to down linemen, end-to-end, either on offense or defense, who set up no farther than 10 yards to the left or right of the ball, or linebackers who set up no farther than five yards deep from the line of scrimmage.


Initial candidates for the award earned All-American honors, were named to their respective all-conference teams or received 2013 preseason honors. The Rotary Lombardi Award Watch List will be updated prior to the start of the 2013 season. Intended as a reference tool for the selection committee, the watch list will be periodically updated and revised through the conclusion of the voting to determine the 12 semifinalists for 2013.


The 44th Rotary Lombardi Award winner will be announced Dec. 11, 2013, at the Wortham Center in Houston. He finished the year with 46 tackles - 13 solo stops and 33 assists - had four quarterback hurries and forced two fumbles during the year.


Following his sophomore season, Ifedi was selected to the 2012 All-Conference USA Second Team by the league's coaches. Heading into the 2013 season, Ifedi has also been tabbed a second-team, preseason all-American Athletic Conference selection by both Athlon Sports' College Football and Phil Steele's College Football Preview.


Academically, Ifedi earned Conference USA Commissioner's Honor Roll accolades each of the past three years.




Martin Ifedi is  the son of Mr. & Mrs Ben Ifedi, immigrants from Umuoji, Nigeria residing in Houston, Texas.
