LSU senior defensive end Lewis Neal has been named to the Hendrick's Award Watch List.
The Ted Hendricks Award is named in honor of college football’s first three-time first-team All- American and is awarded to the nation's top defensive end.
Last year Neal finished the season with 48 total tackles, 9.5 tackles for loss, eight sacks, eight quarterback hurries and one forced fumble.
The SEC landed 12 defensive ends on the 28 player watch list.
