Flugence Named to Second Preseason List

Texas Tech's Lawrence Flugence has been named to the 2002 Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List, announced on Wednesday by the Charlotte Touchdown Club and the Football Writers Association of America. The trophy is awarded annually to the nation's top defensive college player.

Flugence also was named to the Lombardi Award Watch List last week. The 6' 2", 244 pound senior linebacker has been a defensive menace for opponents over the last couple of seasons, amassing 156 tackles as a sophomore in 2000 and 145 tackles in 2001. Both totals led the Big XII. For his efforts last season, Flugence was named to the AP All-America third team. He also earned several first and second-team All-Big XII nods.

Throughout his two seasons as a starter, Flugence has anchored a defense that has shutout four opponents and held three others without an offensive score. One of four team captains last season, he also has seven career sacks to his credit and an interception.

The 800 member FWAA selects the Bronko Nagurski Trophy Watch List candidates, identifies players of the week and names the trophy winner. The Charlotte Touchdown Club, a non-profit organization that raises funds for scholarships, has presented the trophy each year since 1995. Past winners include Warren Sapp (Miami), Charles Woodson (Michigan), Champ Bailey (Georgia), and Roy Williams (Oklahoma).
