Aaron Donald wins Lombardi Award
Pitt senior defensive tackle Aaron Donald won his second major award of the week winning the Lombardi Award given to the best defensive lineman or linebacker in the country. Previously he won the Bronco Nagurski Trophy given to the best defensive player in the nation. Hugh Green, in 1980, was the only other Panther to win the award. Only Tony Dorsett and Hugh Green, each with three, have more major awards for the program, but Donald could surpass that since he is a finalist for the Bednarik Award and the Outland Trophy.
